The Charles Schultz Philosophy

My friend Bill Lites sent this to me via email this morning.


Linus and Snoopy – Charles Schultz – http://www.animationartwork.com

Quiz # 1 – (Just read through and ponder – don’t agonize over actually trying to answer these.)

  • Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
  • Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
  • Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
  • Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
  • Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
  • Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

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.

Quiz # 2

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 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.
