Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Winston Churchill

Part of our western outlook stems from the scientific attitude and its method of isolating the parts of a phenomenon in order to analyze them.

Arthur Erickson

There is a single thread of attitude, a single direction of flow, that joins our present time to its early burgeoning in Mediterranean civilization.

Arthur Erickson

What would be ugly in a garden constitutes beauty in a mountain.

Victor Hugo

Religions do a useful thing: they narrow God to the limits of man. Philosophy replies by doing a necessary thing: it elevates man to the plane of God.

Victor Hugo

Sorrow is a fruit. God does not make it grow on limbs too weak to bear it.

Victor Hugo

A compliment is something like a kiss through a veil.

Victor Hugo

Punk was defined by an attitude rather than a musical style.

David Byrne

It's a fundamental, social attitude that the 1% supports symphonies and operas and doesn't support Johnny learning to program hip-hop beats. When I put it like that, it sounds like, 'Well, yeah,' but you start to think, 'Why not, though?' What makes one more valuable than another?
