Positiveness

  1. We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
  2. There is the story of a lady who never spoke ill of anybody. “I believe you would say something good even about the Devil,” a friend told her.
    “Well,” she said, “you certainly do have to admire his persistence.”

  3. The Lord didn’t burden us with work. He blessed us with it.

  4. When he smells flowers, a pessimist looks around for the funeral.

  5. An optimist is often as wrong as the pessimist, but he has a lot more fun.

  6. Cheerfulness is contagious, but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier!

  7. Few cases of eyestrain have been developed by looking on the bright side of things.

  8. Cheerfulness is contagious, but it seems like some folks have been vaccinated against the infection.

  9. Cheerfulness is the window cleaner of the mind.

  10. Cheerfulness is a great beautifier & a famous preserver of youthful looks.

  11. To the optimist a window is something to let light shine through. To the pessimist a window is something that gets dirty & needs washing.

  12. The Lord gives us our faces, but we must provide the expression.

  13. A grouch spreads cheer wherever he doesn’t go.

  14. An optimist is one who finds an opportunity in every difficulty. A pessimist is one who finds a difficulty in every opportunity.

  15. You can’t have rosy thoughts about the future when your mind is full of the blues about the past.

  16. An easy task becomes difficult when you do it with reluctance.

  17. What good did it do to be grouchy today?
    Did your surliness drive any trouble away?
    Did you cover more ground than you usually do,
    Because of the grouch you carried with you?
    If not, what’s the use of a grouch or a frown,
    If it won’t smooth a path, or a grim trouble down?
    If it doesn’t assist you, it isn’t worthwhile.
    Your work may be hard, but just do it–& smile!

  18. One ABC of Christianity: “Always Be Cheerful” (1Thes.5:16).
