Would be very greatful if someone could translate these english quotes into latin for me please! :)

and the second one i need translating is ' Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us '

Hope someone can help me! :)

I'll give the first one a shot.

Acta nostrum per tempore aeternis resonant. (Our acts resonate throughout eternity.)


Of course... I could be very wrong.

Your adjectives don't agree with your nouns, jamesbath.
Adjectiva tua, jacobebalnei, cum nominibus discrepant.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Acta nostra per tempore aeterno resonant.

Is this better, adrianus?

"Per" takes the accusative case.
Per praepositio accusativo casui servit.
