Happiness and Attitude

I finally found this piece of prose I’ve been trying to find for over ten years.  The last few lines are what are most important to me, so here they are:

“The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is plan on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.  And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.”

I don’t know who wrote that, but they sure were on to something.
