The Peanuts Philosophy

by Charles Schultz

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 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 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
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
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile…..
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.


The lesson is:

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.

(Charles Schultz)
