“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life…” Read the full text of Charles R. Swindoll’s famous quote.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. attitudeThe remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.

— Charles R. Swindoll


  1. Gratitude is the Attitude of those that have Grace

    • Indeed it is. Does Grace follow gratitude or is Grace what you receive when you show gratitude, I wonder. Thanks for sharing.
