Quiz NOT Created by Charles Schultz of The Month

Someone sent this quiz to me that was supposedly created by Chales M. Shultz (creator of Peanuts). Well, the quiz wasn't created by him, but it's pretty insightful anyway:

You don't actually have to take the quiz. Just read this straight through and you'll get the point. Here's the first quiz:
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.

How did you do? The facts are, 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.

Kind of cool, huh? Okay, now here's a quote that actually was written by Charles M. Shultz:

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