Attitude from Martha Washington

Martha Washington

Painting of Martha Washington

Today I ran across this quote attributed to Martha Washington. It is a good reminder to focus on what we can control, not what we can’t.

“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.”

It also reminds me of another quote:

“Behind every successful man is a good woman.”
