They said it before I had a chance to....

"For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else" -Winston Churchill

"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty" -Winston Churchill

"If you think about your disaster you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience" -Swami Vivekananda

"There are always flowers for those who want to see them" -Henri Matisse

"I have found that if you love life, life will love you back" -Arthur Rubinstein

"Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results" -Willie Nelson

"People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them" -Epictetus

"A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes" -Mahatma Gandhi

"Every person is the creation of himself, the image of his own thinking and believing. As individuals think and believe, so they are" -Claude Bristol

"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world" -Buddha

"Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different" -Katherine Mansfield

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" -Oscar Wilde

"Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost" -Helen Keller

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world" -Anne Frank

"I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death" -Nelson Mandela

"One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself" -Lucille Ball

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence" -Helen Keller
