Attitude / Einstellung / Atitude / Actitud

Attitude is a mental and emotional entity that inheres in, or characterizes a person. An Attitude is an evaluation of a person or an object, ranging from extremely negative to extremely positive.

Most contemporary perspectives on Attitudes also permit that people can also be conflicted or ambivalent toward a person by simultaneously holding both positive and negative attitudes toward the same person.

Now, what I would call a real swinging human being is a person who lives on two levels at once. He is able to live on the level of being his ordinary ego, his everyday personality, and play his role in life, and observe the rules and so on that go with that.

But if he is only on that level, if he only playing that kind of thing, and thinks that’s all there is, it becomes a drag.

And his children learn the same attitude from him. He says, ‘Well I got  to survive because I got all these children to support.’ And then they take on the same Attitude; they breed up children and they feel compulsive about supporting them cause they got to go on.

And so nobody really has any fun. It’s just ‘We gotta make this thing!’ And you don’t have to. The sense that you just have to go on living, that life is a must.
