The title says it all. The Ottoman empire was defeated, the European countries wanted to divide it among themselves, and they thought they were preparing for a long lasting peace in this part of the world. But, it didn't happen.

Interesting look at the founding fathers. They were human and were very different from each other. Amazingly, we came out with a great constitution in spite of their differences.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday 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 play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
