A reminder--of the GOOD in the world

Blog quote #1156... 
"It does no harm just once in a while, to acknowledge, that the whole country is not in flames and that there are people in the country besides politicians, entertainers, and criminals."-Charles Kuralt -   
In other words, there are plenty of good folks out there doing admirable things for the world. Although bad news blankets the airwaves daily, there's plenty of good going on; the media just chooses not to talk about it. 
Thanks for the wonderful reminder, Charles.

The sadness of losing an elderly person...

Blog quote #1155... 
"When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground."-African proverb -   
Excellent comment here that references just how much wisdom is collected in a person's life. Always sad to see when wise people leave the planet, knowing all the experiences, trials, and situations they have been through-- along with the knowledge and smarts acquired with the endurement--leave with them. 
Respect the elderly and the wise. They won't be here forever thus we should enjoy their company, stories, and knowledge.

On truly LIVING life...

Blog quote #1154... 
"Will you look back on life and say "I wish I had" or  "I'm glad I did."-Zig Ziglar -   
Zig is the best! We believe he is asking in a different way--are you really diving into life and living it to the fullest, or, are you methodically or begrudgingly just going through the motions?
Regardless of your answer, the rest of your life starts today. If needed  there's time to adjust your course.

What is a teacher...?

Blog quote #1153... 
"A teacher is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way." -J.C. Maxwell-    
Teachers learn--act--instruct. Teachers absorb, then do, then show or pass it on.
Thank you, all teachers out there. We appreciate you!

Know what you are dealing with...

Blog quote #1152... 
"You can't expect an empty bag to stand straight up." -Ken Blanchard-    
We've always been taught to give people, the benefit of the doubt. Also, give humans high expectations to live up to and many times, they will respond accordingly. 
With that stated, sometimes you have to face facts and know what you are dealing with. You got what you got. Some people just don't have it nor do they care a whisker to give any exerted effort. When faced with this, act accordingly and move on...

Making a difference...

Blog quote #1151... 
"It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference." -Tom Brokaw-    
We believe Mr Brokaw is exaggerating a bit when he says it's an easy task to make money. His theme likely stresses that while millions of people make money every day( some great and some pocket change) very few are those who are making a difference in the world. 
He might even be hinting, that all should think a bit more on how we can have a significant impact on others. Certainly worth pondering...
