A Brilliant Philosophy Lesson

The Charles Schulz Philosophy

I want to thank my lovely mother for sending this philosophical piece my way this morning. She told me that the philosophy reminded her of me and I consider that an extraordinary honor.

Please take just a couple of minutes to read the below and ponder what it means to you.

For me it meant planning a few minutes today to send a quick email to those I thought of during the second quiz, to thank them for all of their support throughout my life.


*Scroll through slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full effect

The  following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the  creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.

You don’t have to actually answer the questions below. Just ponder on them. Just read the list 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 pageant.
  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 often 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.



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

Feel free to pass this on to those people who have either made a difference in your life, or whom you keep close in your heart, like I did. ‘Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia !’
