Charles Schultz’s Philosophy

read this recently thought nice one to share…

PostItem Starts Here 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-mailstraight 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 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.
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.

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” (Charles Schultz)

Much Married

A man and a woman who have never met before find themselves in the same sleeping carriage of a train.

After the initial embarrassment they both go to sleep, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower.

In the middle of the night the woman leans over, wakes the man and says, “I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly get me another blanket.”

The man leans out and, with a glint in his eye, says, “I’ve got a better idea… just for tonight, let’s pretend we’re married.”

The woman thinks for a moment. “Why not,” she giggles.

“Great,” he replies, “Get your own damn blanket!”

Husband Shopping Centre…

Recently a “Husband Shopping Centre” opened in London, where women could go to choose a huband from among many men. It was laid out in five floors,with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended.

The only rule was, once you opened the door to any floor, you HAD to
choose a man from that floor; If you went up a floor, you couldn’t go
back down except to leave the place,never to return. A couple of
girlfriends went to the shopping centre to findsome husbands…

First floor:

The door had a sign saying, “These men have jobs and love kids.” The
women read the sign and said, “Well, that’s better than not having a
job, or not loving kids, but I wonder what’s further up?” So up they

Second floor:

The sign read, “These men have high paying jo bs, love kids, and are
extremely good looking. “Hmmm, said the ladies. But, I wonder what’s
further up?”

Third floor:

This sign read, “These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good
looking, love kids and help with the housework. ” Wow! said the women.
Very tempting, BUT, there’s more further up! And up they went.

Fourth floor:

This door had a sign saying “These men have high paying jobs, love kids,
are extremely good looking, help with the housework, and have strong
romantic streak. ” Oh, mercy me. But just think! What must be awaiting
us further on! So up to the fifth floor they went.

Fifth floor:

The sign on that door said, “This floor is empty and exists only to
prove that women are impossible to please.”
