Question Philosophy

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read straight through and you'll get the point.

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.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.



How did you do?

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 are the ones that care.

"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia." (Charles Schultz

Cheers,
Paris

Very nice and agree with Gary and Craig; it's so true !

I love the phrase about being tomorrow in Australia ! May I borrow it ? (I know it's by Schultz but you found it !)

Craig - now you made my head spin

Thank you all for your appreciation - use as you will.

It got me thinking about so many people who have passed through my life and whose lives I had passed through. Made me a little sad in some ways, reflecting on memories and those no longer around.

Gary: here it is time for a beer, but then it always is Good luck with the 1st test and lock up your women, Shane Warne is about

Hi Paris,

Well, we've turned you over for 190 runs in the first innings, but we've just started one of our famous batting collapses, Glen McGrath looks to be in excellent form (curse him), so could be a very interesting Ashes series.

I'm just off to have a beer as well, and to watch the rest of the game (luckily I'm between contracts at the moment, so I can enjoy watching all the test on the telly).
