Thoughts from Peanuts

(This is marvellous! Scroll thru slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full effect)

The  following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the  creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.

 You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them.

Just read the e-mail 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 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?

 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. 




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

Pass this on to those people who have either made a difference in your life, or whom you keep close in your heart, like I did.
