Attitudes are transmitted from one person to another

   Just as a disease is transmitted from one person to another 
   attitudes, sentiments and outlooks are also transmitted from one 
   person to another.  They are transmitted in a home from parents 
   to children;  they are transmitted in a pulpit from preacher to 
   congregation.  These attitudes may be healthy ones redounding 
   to spiritual health or they may be pernicious, poisoning and 
   destroying all they touch.  People are like sheep;  they are 
   followers;  and they have a tendency to pick up attitudes, 
   sentiments, etc. from those about them.  Suspicion begets 
   suspicion, anger begets anger, warmth begets warmth, fear 
   begets fear, malice begets malice, disrespect begets 
   disrespect, kindness begets kindness, trust begets trust, 
   respect begets respect.
