Positive Attitudes Quotes:  E   

Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart  1897 – 1937

Marian Wright Edelman

Marian Wright Edelman  1939
Being considerate of others will take your children further in life than any college degree.

Thomas Edison

Thomas Edison  1847 – 1931

Albert Einstein  1879 – 1955
I speak to everyone in the same way,  whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.

Learn from yesterday – Live for today – Hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is not to stop questioning..

Life is preparation for the future; and the best preparation for the future is to live as if there were none.

Never give up on what you really want to do.  The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts.

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.

No problem can be solved in the same consciousness that was used to create it.

Albert Einstein attitude quote

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein  1879 – 1955
The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty and truth.

The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone, is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein  1879 – 1955
Three rules of work: out of clutter find simplicity, from discord find harmony, in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

Hal Elrod

Hal Elrod  1979
Don’t worry about trying to impress people…  Just focus on how you can add value to their lives.

Every single one of us already has everything we need to be the happiest person on earth; it’s simply up to us to remember that in every moment.

Have faith in the magic and miracles of life… for only those that do, get to experience them.

Let today be the day you give up who you’ve been for who you can become.

Life isn’t about wishing you were somewhere, or someone that you’re not. Life is about enjoying where you are, loving who you are and consistently improving both.

Love the life you have while you create the life of your dreams.  Don’t think you have to wait for the latter to do the former.

Hal Elrod positive attitude quote
Hal Elrod

Hal Elrod  1979
Make bold moves toward your dreams each day,  refuse to stop and nothing can stop you.

Need nothing. ~  Enjoy everything. ~ Love all.

Replace your judgments with empathy,  upgrade your complaining to gratitude and trade in your fear for love.

Stop thinking… Start doing.
Think less… Do more.
Do the thing… And you will know the way.

The moment you accept responsibility for EVERYTHING in your life, is the moment you gain the power to change ANYTHING in your life.

There is nothing to fear, because you cannot fail…  only learn, grow and become better than you’ve ever been before.

When you are consciously aware of all that you have to be grateful for, your life is in perfect harmony.

When you live with integrity and value your word over your excuses, you have the power to speak your dreams into existence.

You must establish and maintain the beliefs that you are… capable, committed and destined to achieve your goals.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson  1803 – 1882
Be an opener of doors.

Be brave enough to do the loving thing.

Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.

For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

Nothing is beneath you… if it is in the direction of your life.

Of cheerfulness or a good temper the more it is spent, the more it remains.

One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it on your heart, that every day is the best day in the year.

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.

The measure of mental health is to find good everywhere.

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Emerson attitude quote – Jessica, Lucy & Seth
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson  1803 – 1882
The reward of a thing well done is… to have done it.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it within us, or we find it not.

Emerson positive attitude quote
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson  1803 – 1882
Trust and instinct to the end, even though you can give no reason.

Emerson positive attitude quote
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson  1803 – 1882
Whatever limits us… we call fate.

Why should I hasten to solve every riddle which life offers me? I am well assured that the Questioner, who brings me so many problems, will bring me the answers also, in due time.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

By choosing to be our most authentic and loving self, we leave a trail of magic everywhere we go.


Epictetus  55 – 135
Don’t explain your philosophy…  Embody it.

People get disturbed not so much by events, but by the view which they take of them.


Epicurus  341BC – 270BC
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.


Euripides  480BC – 406BC
The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.

Waste not fresh tears over old griefs.

Quality means doing it right – when no one is looking.

The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how MUCH he can give for a dollar, instead of how LITTLE he can give for a dollar is bound to succeed.

Whether you think you can or you think you can’t… you are right.

Viktor Frankl

Viktor Frankl  1905 – 1997

Unfinished Or Endless
Do not judge a biography by its length
Nor by the number of pages in it
Judge it by the richness of its contents
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most poignant

Do not judge a song by its duration
Nor by the number of its notes
Judge it by the way it touches and lifts the Soul
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful

And when something has enriched your life
And when it’s melody lingers on in your heart
Is it unfinished?
Or is it endless?

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.

Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin  1706 – 1790
I will speak ill of no man, and speak all the good I know of everybody.

Don’t be afraid to take big steps. You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.

Kahlil Gibran

Kahlil Gibran  1883 – 1931
Enthusiasm is a volcano on whose top never grows the grass of hesitation.

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.

Trina Graves

Trina Graves  1961

If ever you are feeling down
Whatever it is that makes you frown
Just open your eyes and look about
You’ll find something, without a doubt
To make you smile and appreciate
That the simple things in life are great

A smile, a glance, a hug, a touch
From someone that you love so much
A flower, a leaf, a blade of grass
Nature’s treasures that we blindly pass

The serenity of a sleeping child
Even if in the daytime they tend to run wild
A newborn baby so complete yet so small
You can’t help but wonder the miracle of it all

Trina Graves positive attitude quote –
Joey & Tyler (2014)

Determination is the thing on which you can depend. It plods along without a swing, but gets there in the end.

He started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn’t be done, and he did it.

You are the person who has to decide
Whether you’ll do it or toss it aside
You are the person who makes up your mind
Whether you’ll lead or will linger behind
Whether you’ll try for the goal that’s afar
Or just be contented to stay where you are

Edgar Guest positive attitude quote
