  • I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
    Charles R. Swindoll
  • Originally, God was to save individual mind from despair if not disaster, love was an attempt by one mind to possess another mind and justice was a mind's concern for all other minds. In case of the first, mind is too weak and fearful to understand itself. In the second, the nature cripples the reason and over powers human mind! In the third situation, the reason is more evolved and makes the human mind to stand on its own and does what best is possible with respect to other minds!
