Charles Schultz Philosophy
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.
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. Acheivements 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 a few people who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name a few people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of a few people you enjoy spending time with.


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.

Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life.

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

I couldn't put a name to any of the questions.

What does that mean?

"Peanuts" (Charlie Brown, his little sister Sally, Lucy and her little brother (and Charlie Brown's friend) Linus, Pig-Pen, Schroder, Snoopy, the "little red-haired girl", have always been my favorite of all comic strips.

Their creator, Charles Schultz, who passed away not too long ago, said (in an interview I saw on TV several years ago) that he felt he WAS "Charlie Brown" when he was a kid... or at least HE felt he was as he was growing up.

Schultz indicated, in the interview, that he drew Charlie Brown's comic strip experiences from his own experiences & attitudes that he had as a child.

Schultz had a great philosophy on "life"... I often wished I could have shared the same philosophy, butttttttttttt... few of us could.

Strength & Honor...

The red headed girl was from Charlies real life. He had a thing for her. When he signed his first contract for his Peanuts comic strip, he went home and ask the redheaded girl to marry him. She turned him down.

Charlie had great finance sucess. He made 25 Million a year for many years.

He didn't like the name Peanuts and would have called it Lil Folks.

Charles lived in Santa Rosa, CA. So did I until 3 years ago.

He loved ice hockey and had a ice skating rink built in Santa Rosa. It was available for use at a reasonable cost.

Every year he had a Senior Ice Hockey tournament that he took part in up until the time of his death. Teams from all over the country would come.
