    This one is a bit soft, but I thought it was a good one :)

    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 Contest.
    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 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

    Easier?

    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.’

    Thank you, Renee. This is a nice message.

    Besides the importance of friendship, there’s one more thought that crossed my mind, when reading this test. Most people will not be able to name recent Nobel Prize winners or, let’s say, important leaders in their countries, who really try to make a difference. However, everybody will be able to name at least one recent Academy Award winner, or the latest faux pas of Britney Spears or Paris Hilton. It’s sad, no? :huh2:
