Sydney Pollack
The influence of a mother upon the lives of her children cannot be measured. They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness, and industry.
Billy Graham

I’ve met a ton of new people who have colitis or Crohn’s. Talking to them has been probably the most healing thing: to hear other people’s attitudes on how they deal with their disease and how they stay positive.
Mike McCready
Liberals and conservatives are looking for entirely different things. Their attitudes toward romance and how they court are really dramatically different. There’s almost no overlap.

Lee Konitz
Dependency arguments often come from elites – either aid agencies or governments – and say something about attitudes to poor people.

Corporatist attitudes against capitalism came to the fore in the 1920s. Corporatists, with their conservative values, hated the invasion of towns and regions by new businesses, upsetting traditional ways, wealth and status.
Edmund Phelps
Conservatism is about freedom, yes. But it is also about the institutions and attitudes that shape the responsible citizen, and ensure that freedom is a benefit to us all. Conservatism is therefore also about the limits to freedom.
Roger Scruton
Opinion of the sport is constantly getting better. Our semi-professional league is starting to change people’s attitudes, and it’ll get better as the years go on.
Steph Houghton
Every generation has someone who steps outside the norm and offers a voice for the unspeakable attitudes of that time. I represent everything that’s supposed to be wrong, everything that’s forbidden.
Sam Kinison
In the old days, people shared music; they didn’t care who made it. A song would be owned by a village, and anyone could sing it, change the words, whatever. That is how humans treated music until the late 19th century. Now, with the Internet, we are going back to having tribal attitudes towards music.
Ryuichi Sakamoto
Feminism has changed the way women think, and it has changed the way men think, but the trouble is, it hasn’t changed the attitudes of babies at all.

Mother Angelica
The ministers of Christ should possess refinement. All uncouth manners, attitudes and gestures should be discarded, and they should encourage in themselves humble dignity of bearing.
Ellen G. White
People always think that history proceeds in a straight line. It doesn’t. Social attitudes don’t change in a straight line. There’s always a backlash against progressive ideas.
Erica Jong
Dress codes and gestures and attitudes have always inspired me, as has youth culture in general, although now I question it more. If you analyze youth cultures over history, there has always been something strict about them – you have to be like this or like that.
Raf Simons
Watching kids go from the age of 9 and 10 to 13 is a big, huge jump. The way they speak, their looks, their attitudes, everything changes as you go from being a little kid to a teenager.
Shanola Hampton

Chloe Madeley
I know a lot of people who really aren’t beautiful because their attitudes are very nasty… Whether I make the 50 most beautiful list or not, I’m always going to feel like I’m number one most beautiful to myself… I get that from my mom, and my daddy and my friends who raised me.
Queen Latifah
I have a retro feel to my work, to my person, but I also have a futuristic view of what’s possible. We can have people in pop that have more diverse looks and attitudes.

Holly Near
I always spend time exploring the customs and attitudes of the countries I’m using for locations, and interviewing the people who live there. I’ve visited over 90 countries thus far.

Kirsty Gallacher
I love animals. I just don’t want to have a pet. That’s OK, right? I would take a dog over a cat, at least to interact with you. I feel like cats just stare you down all the time. Cats have, like, bad attitudes.
Erin Foster
We are, at almost every point of our day, immersed in cultural diversity: faces, clothes, smells, attitudes, values, traditions, behaviours, beliefs, rituals.
Randa Abdel-Fattah
It is one of the most effective attitudes of the neurotic to measure thumbs down, so to speak, a real person by an ideal, since in doing so he can depreciate him as much as he wishes.
Alfred Adler
What starts the process, really, are laughs and slights and snubs when you are a kid. If your anger is deep enough and strong enough, you learn that you can change those attitudes by excellence, personal gut performance.
Richard M. Nixon
The outcome, the fourth in an issue of five boys born into a staunch Baptist home, meant that from the beginning I was taught to be respectful of others no less than myself, influencing ever since both my political and administrative attitudes.
James Black
Going through an illness and then death of a close friend has changed my attitudes to friendship enormously.

A lot of times, I faced bullies – or the ‘big dogs’ at school. What I wanted ‘Red Rising’ to be is not necessarily an indictment on bullies, but it reflects my experiences and attitudes that I had with bullies growing up.
Pierce Brown
Since the global economic crisis began, the change in global attitudes is clear to see – and I think it is pitiful. Barack Obama came to China and he is probably the only president of the United States never to mention the words ‘human rights’ in public.
Ai Weiwei
Women have a lot of… attitudes enforced in us about our sense of attractiveness being bound up in long, flowing, Hollywood kind of hair.
Natalie Dormer
I wanted to modernize music, but more than that, to completely modernize people’s attitudes towards life in general.
Roy Harper
For too long, our society has shrugged off bullying by labeling it a ‘rite of passage’ and by asking students to simply ‘get over it.’ Those attitudes need to change. Every day, students are bullied into silence and are afraid to speak up. Let’s break this silence and end school bullying.
Linda Sanchez
How we think shows through in how we act. Attitudes are mirrors of the mind. They reflect thinking.
David Joseph Schwartz
The struggle to conquer oppression in our country is the weaker for the traditionalist, conservative, and primitive restraints imposed on women by man-dominated structures within our movement, as also because of equally traditionalist attitudes of surrender and submission on the part of women.
Oliver Tambo
There are terrific models for success with reluctant readers, but many school systems and state governments need to set aside their ‘not invented here’ and ‘we have more important problems than education’ attitudes.
James Patterson
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.

Charles C. Mann
Individuals need to be willing to face truth about their attitudes, behaviors, even what we want out of life.
Joyce Meyer
China and the U.S. are two societies with very different attitudes towards opinion and criticism. In China, I am constantly under surveillance. Even my slightest, most innocuous move can – and often is – censored by Chinese authorities.
Ai Weiwei
Further devastation of the air, land and sea is obviously a very real possibility, unless the attitudes of politicians and all who irresponsibly exploit our natural resources change significantly in the very near future and all collaborate and sacrifice for the good of the planet.
Viggo Mortensen
I came into the Agency with a set of ideas and attitudes that were quite typical of people coming into the Agency at that time. You could call it liberal anti-communism.
Aldrich Ames
I don’t think anyone is black and white and I think we change our minds and our attitudes about certain things as we grow to our maturity.

Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.
Charles R. Swindoll
Cock your hat – angles are attitudes.
Frank Sinatra
I think one of the major results of the psychology of decision making is that people’s attitudes and feelings about losses and gains are really not symmetric. So we really feel more pain when we lose $10,000 than we feel pleasure when we get $10,000.
Daniel Kahneman
In times of uncertainty – whether it’s economic, psychological, emotional, or philosophical – people often say that the only thing we can truly control is our attitudes. If that’s true, then I’m going to spend today walking my 14-year-old dog on a free beach and treasuring the fact that she’s still alive.
Ali Liebegott
If you look at attitudes today and where they are headed, it’s clear to me that supporting equal rights, including the rights to civil marriage, is a net positive for winning elections, as well as the right thing to do.
Ken Mehlman
Though gay lifestyles have certainly moved into the open, there’s little evidence that society has become more open in its basic attitudes or that entertainers should feel cozy in emerging from the velvet underground.
Peter Bart
There has been a change in men’s attitudes toward their clothes. Men are more aware of fashion; they’re not afraid of it.
Calvin Klein
We need to make sure we’re all working together to change mindsets, to change attitudes, and to fight against the bad habits that we have as a society.
Justin Trudeau
We owe the Aboriginal peoples a debt that is four centuries old. It is their turn to become full partners in developing an even greater Canada. And the reconciliation required may be less a matter of legal texts than of attitudes of the heart.
Romeo LeBlanc
The greatest challenge to most innovation centers around the world is many nations’ punitive attitudes towards failure. In most of the world, if your first business fails, no one will work with you again. But, trial and error is the genesis of innovation.
Jay Samit
Coming out was crucial to changing attitudes about gays and lesbians: will people feel differently about abortion if they know their mother, their aunt, or their friend had one?
Katha Pollitt
Well, I think he’s right to notice that there is a difference in attitudes and even in the broadest sense of world view between Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Which is old and which is new is an interesting question, and I almost think that maybe he’s got it backwards.
Robert Kagan
One might say that our words are a movie screen that reveals what we have been thinking and the attitudes we have.
Joyce Meyer
There’s a certain elitism that has crept into the attitudes of some in journalism, and it played out perfectly over the issue of these little American flag lapel pins.
Brit Hume
In a world where audiences listen for attitudes rather than arguments or information, speakers must feel the pressure to posture rather than engage.
Abhijit Banerjee
I’m a professional songwriter – personal attitudes have nothing to do with writing a song.
Sammy Cahn
Silent pictures show us how we lived and what our attitudes were. And as an art form, they can be wonderfully entertaining and often inspirational.

Howard Baker
I suspect there are people in all walks of life who need to be dragged into the 21st century in terms of attitudes towards women.
Frances O’Grady
There is certainly greatness in the ’60s generation. They changed our attitudes about race in America, which was long overdue. They didn’t just stand up and salute when told to go to war. Women finally began to realize a more equal place in our society.
Tom Brokaw
I’m a doer and I just want to do it. Whatever attitudes, prejudices, stereotypical ideas that are in front of me, I will break them. But the only way I can break them is by getting a job, and if I need to start in the gutter, I will start in the gutter and work my way up. Money isn’t an issue.
Sol Campbell
The process of shaping opinion, attitudes, and perceptions was termed the ‘engineering of consent’ by one of the founders of the modern public relations industry, Edward Bernays.
Noam Chomsky
The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.
William James
Some of the vintage comedy on Radio 4 Extra wasn’t very funny to begin with, whereas some things just get funnier regardless of the changes in public attitudes over the years.
David Hepworth
All the gestures of children are graceful; the reign of distortion and unnatural attitudes commences with the introduction of the dancing master.
Joshua Reynolds
Attitudes are more important than facts.
George MacDonald
I know what the attitudes of the readers are: These are guys who love women and respect women.
Christie Hefner
As a child and a teenager, my attitudes and actions assumed the superiority of my race in almost every way without knowing or wanting to know anybody who was black, except Lucy. Lucy came to our house on Saturdays to help my mother clean. I liked Lucy, but the whole structure of the relationship was demeaning.
John Piper
‘Mad Men’ doesn’t capture one single thing about the decor, costumes, or sexual interaction. It is a total projection of contemporary snarky attitudes into the past.
Camille Paglia
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with heavy metal, Van Halen, Motley Crue. The older I got, my tastes widened. I always felt an attraction to the attitudes of punk; also punk filmmakers, like Richard Kern.
Panos Cosmatos
There are real-world, devastating consequences for disabled women marginalised by the kinds of attitudes that deny them full agency over what happens to their bodies.
Stella Young
There’s this idea that many of the attitudes and personality developments in black folks in the diaspora are a consequence of this unresolved trauma. There have been attempts by black artists to try and figure out how to represent that in some kind of way.
Kerry James Marshall
Individual writers have different postures, different stances, even different physical attitudes as they stand or sit over their blank paper, and in a sense, without doing it, they are crossing themselves; I mean, it’s like the habit of Catholics going into water: you cross yourself before you go in.
Derek Walcott
The new generation of Labour is different. Different attitudes, different ideas, different ways of doing politics.
Ed Miliband
In a war, no matter the outcome of a certain skirmish or battle, the winner is the party whose attitudes, behaviors and preoccupations come to dominate the postwar landscape. By this measure, the outcome of the gender wars, if wars they were, is clear: women won.
Marcus Buckingham
Games have a huge impact on our society because the media plays a role in helping to shape our attitudes. So it’s not just fantasy.
Anita Sarkeesian
I have genuine respect for women and I want to win their respect. I don’t want them to look at me and say, ‘Oh, another man with the same attitudes as most men.’
Jose Feliciano
My attitudes have changed, but somebody would have to read all my books to find out how they have.
Irwin Shaw
When you act, you take on the attitudes and the emotions of others. There has to be a release. Most often done in conviviality. That’s why there are clubs like the Players, the Friars – in London, the Garrick.
Jason Robards
Conflicting legislation and regulations, overlapping mandates, unwillingness to enforce land use, elite capture, entrenched attitudes, and lack of incentives to influence behavior are rife in many resource-rich countries.
Sri Mulyani Indrawati
I believe that I’m a hillbilly in my values and in my attitudes, and I don’t want to lose that. I think it’s possible to maintain a big chunk of that identity so long as you’re self-reflective and meaningful about it.
J. D. Vance
When I watch ‘Mad Men’ and I see the patronising attitudes to women that are so shocking for all of us to watch now, I feel that I’ve lived and see the same evolution in this regard around disability.
Aimee Mullins
For to change the norms, the very foci of attention, of a cultural system is a difficult task – far more complex than that of changing an individual’s attitudes and interests.
James S. Coleman
People like Ellie Simmonds, David Weir, and Hannah Cockroft have become superstars alongside the likes of Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis. I think it has changed attitudes to disability.
Lynn Davies
Parents learn the uses of power and its limits. They can insist on certain outward behavior but cannot change inner attitudes. They can require obedience but not goodness – and certainly not love.
Philip Yancey
I am often asked why there is discrimination against women in science. And I have given it some thought. With prejudicial attitudes, you can’t really do much. You can point out when people discriminate and ask them not to.
Christiane Nusslein-Volhard
The left sees nothing but bigotry and superstition in the popular defense of the family or in popular attitudes regarding abortion, crime, busing, and the school curriculum.
Christopher Lasch
You can’t actually legislate what goes on in people’s minds and their attitudes, but you certainly can legislate for parity where pay and salaries are concerned.
Diana Rigg
Attitudes toward food have completely changed.
Giada De Laurentiis
We need to change attitudes. We can only change attitudes by working together. Government will do its bit, but I want you all to do your bit, too. So speak out, stand up against violence against women and girls, and that’s the way we can eradicate it.
Theresa May
A part of me is a liberal New Yorker involved in politics and certain attitudes about movies. I kind of lost my indie credibility over ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ I know I haven’t lost it. I just have to go make an independent movie. I just have to do it. Just for me.
Doug Liman
Even if everything its detractors say about Fox were true, the most liberal of liberal attitudes would be that one would get credit for being in the lion’s den.
Alan Colmes
The lopsided attitudes of college professors pose a serious challenge to learning because students are so susceptible to becoming lopsided sheep.
Suzanne Fields
When you meet someone new who instantly gets you, your sense of humor and your attitudes and your worldview, even if theirs are different – and you get them in return. You both talk and talk and agree and laugh and nod and yes, yes, of course you should get another round of drinks.
Erin Morgenstern
Sometimes it feels as if the artist hasn’t done the real work of engaging with the material. Film noir can’t just play off looks and attitudes. A thriller needs a dose of genuine suspense. It does not have to be literal, but it does have to feel genuine. Otherwise the artist is just leeching off the form.
Margo Jefferson
My core belief is to seek peace in the world, helping people eliminate certain malevolent attitudes through education as much as possible.
Fethullah Gulen
The decline of particle physics in the U.S. is really a symptom of the erratic and sometimes anti-scientific attitudes in Washington and the incompetence of Congress in managing science.
Bill Foster
I am delighted that young filmmakers want me in their films. They have open minds and a fresh take on old attitudes. I derive a lot of energy from them. Most of all, I find their love and respect utterly disarming.
Victor Banerjee
Blues is the bedrock of everything I do. All the characters in my plays, their ideas and attitudes, the stance they adopt in the world, are all ideas and attitudes that are expressed in the blues.
August Wilson
I think one of the things that language poets are very involved with is getting away from conventional ideas of beauty, because those ideas contain a certain attitude toward women, certain attitudes toward sex, certain attitudes toward race, etc.
Diane Wakoski
I was able to work out all sorts of attitudes to style and event and character, all of which affected the way I came to think about my own writing. I believe that all good writers are original.
Margaret Mahy
I want to work with faith-based leaders to address the negative attitudes that are still too often associated with mental illness, attitudes that hold people back from getting the help that they need.
Vivek Murthy
Gender injustice is a social impairment and therefore has to be corrected in social attitudes and behaviour.
Mohammad Hamid Ansari
Dangal’ movie has been made on our lives in which two daughters win a medal for the country. It just shows that the times are changing and people’s attitudes are changing and if it is changing because of us then we are very happy about it.
Geeta Phogat
I can’t remember a picture that has expressed black attitudes and personal relationships as vividly as we’ve done in ‘Cadence.’
Laurence Fishburne
If you are building a culture where honest expectations are communicated and peer accountability is the norm, then the group will address poor performance and attitudes.
Henry Cloud
News and images move so easily across borders that attitudes and aspirations are no longer especially national. Cyber-weapons, no longer the exclusive province of national governments, can originate in a hacker’s garage.
Robert Reich
There are no new facts about the Kennedys, only new attitudes, a literature that, like the automobile industry, puts new bodies on old chassis.
John Gregory Dunne
With clear definitions and a taxonomy that illustrates their relationships, the Inventure Cycle defines the pathway from inspiration to implementation. This framework captures the skills, attitudes, and actions that are necessary to foster innovation and to bring breakthrough ideas to the world.
Steve Blank
One of the depressing things one realizes as one gets older is how much of one’s tastes and attitudes are simply products of economic circumstance at the time.
Nick Hornby
You cannot tailor-make the situations in life but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.
Zig Ziglar
Every individual’s listening is as unique as his or her fingerprints because we all listen through filters that develop from our personal mix of culture, language, values, beliefs, attitudes, expectations and intentions. That is why one person’s musical taste is another person’s hideous noise.
Julian Treasure
I started out as an impressionist and that’s all about observing – how people move, their voice quality, their attitudes and quirks.
Eddie Murphy
If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior.
William Glasser
In the United States, one of the main topics of academic political science is the study of attitudes and policy and their correlation. The study of attitudes is reasonably easy in the United States: heavily-polled society, pretty serious and accurate polls, and policy you can see, and you can compare them.
Noam Chomsky
Novels can change attitudes. Maybe we should speak quietly otherwise politicians will use novels as propaganda.
Olga Tokarczuk
There was a whole language that I could never make function for myself in relationship to painting and that was attitudes like tortured, struggle, pain.
Robert Rauschenberg
Crashing could not be more inconsiderate to a host. It is a negative act because hosts likely have a particular plan for the event, an intention to move guests’ attitudes in a certain direction.
Letitia Baldrige
In the coming years, if not sooner, social media will become a powerful tool that consumers will aggressively use to influence business attitudes and force companies into greater social responsibility – and, I suggest, move us towards a more sustainable practice of capitalism.
Simon Mainwaring
Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force.
Irving Berlin
There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
For too long, people have had to neutralise or lose their accent out of fear of prejudicial treatment or to fit in. This has then led to a lack of regional accents, which has allowed this lazy stereotyping and prejudicial attitudes to prevail.
Esther McVey
You can’t always count on the devices, attitudes, and conceits that stood you in good stead in 1972 or 1973, or 1978-79, to still have the same impact all these years later.
Walter Becker
As long as the problem of world reconstruction remains the center of interest for all nations, blocs having similar attitudes will form and operate even within the League itself.
Hjalmar Branting
The biggest challenge is how to affect public attitudes and make people care.
Jim Fowler
For organisations, flexibility is a must to cope with fluctuations in demand and remain competitive, and people must be able to develop adaptable attitudes to quickly embrace evolving business conditions, new business opportunities, and shifting strategies.
Alain Dehaze
Despite Japan’s desires and efforts, unfortunate differences in the ways that Japan, England, the United States, and China understood circumstances, together with misunderstandings of attitudes, made it impossible for the parties to agree.
Hideki Tojo
I feel that as long as you’re honest, you have the opportunity to grow. It’s when you shut down, go into denial, and try to start hiding things from yourself and others, that’s when you lock in certain behaviors and attitudes that keep you stuck.
Tracy McMillan
I really got the ‘Rhoda’ flavor from studying my stepmother, Angela, who’s Italian, not Jewish. There’s really so little difference between the speech patterns and family attitudes of Jews and Italians in the New York area, anyway.
Valerie Harper
Arendt did have a certain snobbishness, though in some of her writing she expressed more democratic attitudes.
Barbara Sukowa
We had great faith that with patience, understanding, and education, that my family and I could be helpful in changing their minds and attitudes around.
Ryan White
My experience of what a loving relationship is like rings true with a lot of people I meet. I have a theory that the people you meet, one way you choose them, is their suitability for you in that particular matter. Attitudes toward friendship and marriage are in many cases closely aligned.
Robert Christgau
I liked Stanley Kubrick from the start. He had a warm, benign nature and offered himself to you as a friend and ally. He seemed to possess no airs or attitudes, neuroses, or predilection towards tantrums.
Steven Berkoff
I see little difference in the attitudes of those who consider themselves Christian and those who are openly secular and agnostic. Most Christian citizenship appears to be clearly right here – on this little bit of very unreal estate.
Richard Rohr
Stardom’s transitory. Nothing really changes except people’s attitudes.
Ian Brown
Our nation’s attitudes toward trade have been shaped by the evolving struggle over who has been helped and who has been disadvantaged by trade policy as our economy has developed.
Danny K. Davis
Men have always been gentlemen to me – responsible people with healthy attitudes.
Aretha Franklin
The concepts of Joss are pure, and express attitudes and technical ideals.
Cliff Shaw
Even though there are so many different ‘kinds’ of music – different textures, different timbres, different attitudes – there is something divine at the core of all music.
Andrew W.K.
We can’t determine our emotions, but we can choose our attitudes and actions.
Gary Chapman
Three coaches at Notre Dame made a big difference in my life, not that I played any football when I attended Notre Dame. But Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holtz – they all made a difference to me, and I respected them for their attitudes about life and how they handled loss.
Regis Philbin
Our future cannot depend on the government alone. The ultimate solutions lie in the attitudes and the actions of the American people.
Joe Biden
Tourism is a very big economic benefit to the Sherpa people, and also, they have very strong ties to their own social attitudes and their own religion, so fortunately, they’re not too influenced by many of our Western attitudes.
Edmund Hillary
That’s the kind of musical freedom I like: jazz, rock, blues, anything. You adopt different attitudes when you play different music.
Alvin Lee
Eagles come in all shapes and sizes, but you will recognize them chiefly by their attitudes.
E. F. Schumacher
The discourse of the West and the attitudes of its leaders are important because they influence public debate in Turkey.
Safak Pavey
Question: Why are we Masters of our Fate, the captains of our souls? Because we have the power to control our thoughts, our attitudes. That is why many people live in the withering negative world. That is why many people live in the Positive Faith world.
Alfred A. Montapert
Many of our ideas of what love is comes from stories… these are extremely powerful shapers of our attitudes towards love, and I think that, in some ways, often we’ve got the wrong story.
Alain de Botton
Something as curious as the monarchy won’t survive unless you take account of people’s attitudes. After all, if people don’t want it, they won’t have it.
Prince Charles
