From a purely physical standpoint she didn't have a chance, but her attitude was that death was better than capitulation.
Much stronger boys in her class soon learned that it could be quite unpleasant to fight with that skinny girl. Unlike other girls in the class, she never backed down, and she would not for a second hesitate to use her fists or any weapon at hand to protect herself. She went around with the attitude that she would rather be beaten to death than take any shit.
You are someone who is different, but who wants to be the same as everyone else. And that in my view is a serious illness. God chose you to be different. Why are you disappointing God with this kind of attitude?
Oliver . . . well. Who knew if Oliver's problem was the disease or just a bad attitude?
I've been doing this a long time, and I've come to learn that predictions don't mean much. Too much lies outside the realm of medical knowledge. A lot of what happens next comes down to you and your specific genetics, your attitude. No, there's nothing we can do to stop the inevitable, but that's not the point. The point is that you should try to make the most of the time you have left.
If you worked out enough, maybe the man would too. Maybe you would be able to work it out together, as if the two of you were a puzzle that could be solved; otherwise, one of you, most likely the man, taking his addictive body with him and leaving you with bad withdrawal, which you could counteract by exercise. If you didn't work it out it was because one of you had the wrong attitude.
Chingachgook grasped the hand that, in the warmth of feeling, the scout had stretched across the fresh earth, and in that attitude of friendship these intrepid woodsmen bowed their heads together, while scalding tears fell to their feet, watering the grave of Uncas like drops of falling rain.
It was like swimming against a current that swept you backwards however hard you struggled, and then suddenly deciding to turn round and go with the current instead of opposing it. Nothing had changed except your own attitude: the predestined thing happened in any case.
Her attitude? You mean Efron enjoys spiteful bitchiness...
The foundation is just everything. Throughout my childhood, my parents were always behind me in everything I wanted to do. Having the support behind me made me strive and keep striving and just have that no-fear attitude. ... We do everything together.
It doesn't change our focus or our attitude. It's just one game. Most teams, this happens to them coming into a season. We hopefully got ours out of the way right now.
I think she's a little more relaxed and she goes in with the attitude to just play. Last season (in the playoffs), she would get frustrated, and this year, she's more relaxed.
There is a single thread of attitude, a single direction of flow, that joins our present time to its early burgeoning in Mediterranean civilization.
The weekend is going to be extremely difficult as we are playing indoors against three teams that have been practicing indoors all season. Overall, we are going in with nothing to lose, sort of the underdog attitude. I like this because we can play loose and that is when good things can happen.
When I am on the field, I am an assistant coach responsible to the head coach and I convey that attitude, ... I am a volunteer to help these young men kick the football. That's my job in that arena.
Our expectation after the McDonald's campaign was that the corporations would trip over themselves to make similar changes. Instead, the corporations took a wait-and-see attitude.
I can't say exactly what did it, but Chris has a different attitude. I've seen him yelling at people and getting people in line. That just wasn't the Chris that we had before.
They don't overanalyze everything like a veteran player can do. They're just trying to get through that day and the next play and that was the case a lot of times this year. They didn't panic because they didn't know any better. I'm hoping they keep that attitude.
You don't want him under wraps. You don't want to squelch his enthusiasm or attitude, because that's what makes him such a great player. One way or another, he needs to be able to release.
We treated it like other matches and went in with a workman's-like attitude. We knew what we had to do and feeling that we matched up pretty well with Maryland, we were confident going into the match.
Commissioner Gary Bettman , in an online chat with fans, said that reaching a new collective agreement with the players is not about compromise. It's about doing the right thing to ensure that the game and the franchises are healthy. ... It's unfortunate that he does not see compromise as the way to get a deal done. That attitude is what has prevented us from having any meaningful negotiations that can lead to a fair deal for both sides. It is disturbing that their only response is to say they have all the solutions and there can be no compromise.
Evangelism is not an activity at all. It is rather an attitude of mind behind all Christian activity. Evangelism is not a list of certain things done, but the spirit in which they are done. That is precisely why it cannot be organized. It is perhaps best described as an attitude of mind towards God and the world an attitude which the Church must recover if she is to be true to her Lord, and to seize hold of the present opportunity.
Certain kinds of speed, flow, intensity, density of attacks, density of interaction... Music that concentrates on those qualities is, I think, easier achieved by free improvisation between people sharing a common attitude, a common language.
Scott is a natural leader. And he had a winner's attitude. He's just a tremendous competitor. When it got down to crunch time, he wanted the ball, he wanted to make the play. And he was smart. He understood the offense, and we really were doing some different things back then. Everyone had confidence in him.
That, to me, was the most impressive thing of the whole night. On the bench, there was no frustration. There was nothing other than, 'All it will take is one shot.' I was extremely impressed with the attitude, being there firsthand.
Football clubs can no longer ignore the issue of ticket revenues. There must be a tidal change in the attitude towards club funding in the next few years because there is simply no getting away from the fact that ticket prices cannot continue to rise at the rate they have. This means costs will have to be cut elsewhere and the development of other revenue streams considered. The most obvious place to rein in costs is player salaries.
Obviously, it is tough losing a guy of his caliber, his ability, but I think we might be better off. ... Nothing against him and his attitude. It's just that when you get out there on the field, it's about playing together.
I just like his mindset, his attitude. Nothing seems to bother him and he's a got a little strut that goes with it.
The corporate attitude is that they don't want to track newsgroups to solve technical problems the bulk of the industry simply wants to buy solutions, and so we're scaling up.
He's just an amazing young man. He's smart, energetic, willing to work and he has a great attitude. Everybody is just enthralled with this kid.
