Wisdom From Charles Schulz

A friend recently sent me this little gem written by Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts.

Following is some philosophy from Charles Schulz, creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.


You don’t have to actually
answer the questions. Just ponder on them.   Read the following 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
 lesson is that none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These
 were not second-rate achievers.
They
were 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.

And the one that gave the most and cared the most is Our Lord Jesus!

Pass this on to those people whom you keep close in your heart.


“Don’t
  worry about the world coming to an end today.

It’s already tomorrow in   Australia!”

And may God bless you, whomever and wherever you may be.
