Good attitude to have:)

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. —William Arthur Ward
Never be so busy as not to think of others. —Mother Teresa
Dedicate some of your life to others. Your dedication will not be a sacrifice. It will be an exhilarating experience because it is an intense effort applied toward a meaningful end. —Dr. Thomas Dooley
We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. —Sir Winston Churchill
If my mind can conceive it, my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it! —Jesse Jackson
Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do. —David Wilkerson
What I admire in Columbus is not his having discovered a world, but his having gone to search for it on the faith of his own opinion. —Turgot
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you! —Christian D. Larson
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. —William Penn
I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help.

Each of us can look back upon someone who made a great difference in our lives, someone whose wisdom or simple acts of caring made an impression upon us. In all likelihood it was someone who sought no recognition for their deed other than the joy of knowing that, by their hand, another's life had been made better. —Stephen M. Wolf
If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better. —Will Smith
If you shift your focus from yourself to others, extend your concern to others, and cultivate the thought of caring for the well being of others, then this will have the immediate effect of opening up your life and helping you to reach out. —The 14th Dalai Lama
