attitude is more important

I came across this W.C.Fields quote which sounds strangely similar to the Swindoll quote.
"Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill."
- W. C. Fields

Ah! W.C. Fields, one of my favorite comedy stars. I believe the first movie I ever saw him in was "You Can't Cheat an Honest Man." (1939) He really did like children although he always said he didn't. Another one of his quotes: When caught reading a Bible he said, "Just looking for loopholes."

P.S. All got home late last night from the mission trip in North Dakota. Ruth said they had a great time, but said the poverty among the Indians is tragic. Casino profits find their way to the politicians and the Mafia and not the people that need them. They returned to extreme heat and humidity in Pontiac. CJH
