So true!

I cudnt resist myself from posting this. In an era of rampant consumerism, fierce competitivness real things in life just are forgotten coz people are so busy with so many other things in life. Well read the fwd i got and u will get my point.

Charles Schultz Philosophy

You don't actually have to take the quiz.

Just read the following straight through, and you'll get the point.

It is trying to make an nice point.

Here's the quiz:

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 contest.

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

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor/ress.

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

How did you do?

The facts are, 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.

6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you


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, that love and that effect you in their

own subtle way.
