Philosophy

Today we are going to explore philosophy a bit with a guest speaker.  This individual has "schooled" all of us on life through out the years.  He is a great role model to us all.  Please welcome Mr. Charles Schulz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip, and his views on philosophy.  I encourage each and everyone of you to read these words, think about them and how true to life they really are.   Mr. Schulz....
You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them.
  • 1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
  • 2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
  • 3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
  • 4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
  • 5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
  • 6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?   Hmmmm.....The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.  These are no second-rate achievers.  They are the best in their fields.  But the applause dies...Awards tarnish...Achievements are forgotten.  Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money...or the most awards.
They simply are the ones who care the most!

'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.
It's already tomorrow in Australia !'

 ''Be Yourself. Everyone Else Is Taken!"
(I don't know if Charles Schulz really wrote this...I don't really care...it makes an impact that that is what matters)
