Quote of the Day
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
Charles R. Swindoll
How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.
It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
Admittedly, a homosexual can be conditioned to react sexually to a woman, or to an old boot for that matter. In fact, both homo - and heterosexual experimental subjects have been conditioned to react sexually to an old boot, and you can save a lot of money that way.
William S. Burroughs
As a goalkeeper you need to be good at organising the people in front of you and motivating them. You need to see what's going on and react to the threats. Just like a good manager in business.
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but how we react to what happens, not by what life brings us but the attitude we bring to life.
Have the courage to act instead of react.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
In London, the weather would affect me negatively. I react strongly to light. If it is cloudy and raining, there are clouds and rain in my soul.
I have no choice about whether or not I have Parkinson's. I have nothing but choices about how I react to it. In those choices, there's freedom to do a lot of things in areas that I wouldn't have otherwise found myself in.
Michael J. Fox
In a way, a lot of my humor comes from presenting things that are dramatic or shocking and then people not having socially appropriate responses, having people denying the drama by failing to react to it, and that's a really classic form of humor.
Customers don't know what they want. There's plenty of good psychology research that shows that people are not able to accurately predict how they would behave in the future. So asking them, 'Would you buy my product if it had these three features?' or 'How would you react if we changed our product this way?' is a waste of time. They don't know.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 96% how I react to it.
My stories are about humans and how they react, or fail to react, or react stupidly. I'm pointing the finger at us, not at the zombies. I try to respect and sympathize with the zombies as much as possible.
George A. Romero
I claim that human mind or human society is not divided into watertight compartments called social, political and religious. All act and react upon one another.
To find gratitude and generosity when you could reasonably find hurt and resentment will surprise you. It will be so surprising because you will see so much of the opposite: people who have much more than others yet who react with anger when one advantage is lost or with resentment when an added gift is denied.
Henry B. Eyring
The celebration... you cannot practice it or anything. It's a moment when the excitement of your goal make you react to the moment.
I react very badly when mediocrity throws a tantrum of entitlement.
People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that's how they'll react. But if you say, 'We want peace, we want stability,' we can then do a lot of things that will contribute towards the progress of our society.
People react to criticism in different ways, and my way is definitely to come out fighting.
Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control.
It's every lawyer's dream to help shape the law, not just react to it.
People react to fear, not love; they don't teach that in Sunday School, but it's true.
Richard M. Nixon
I take compliments and I take constructive criticism. Not everyone loves you. It's the way you react as a footballer. I use it all to make me play better.
Timothy F. Cahill
There's only one interview technique that matters... Do your homework so you can listen to the answers and react to them and ask follow-ups. Do your homework, prepare.
'Watchmen' is a politically charged story, and it explores exactly what a hero is, how the world would treat them and how they would react. It was the first time I read a superhero story that explored that situation. These are very real people with very real problems.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
