Philosophy of Charles Schulz -Peanuts Comic Strip

So i got this email from a very dear friend  and it was titled "Philosophy of Charles Schulz"
My friend is an enthusiast about philosophy. And i thought this email is just some sharing of knowledge or some kind of  a boring theory. ( No offence to the field of philosophy of course but theories are so " theoretical " that sometimes they get boring and going around in a never ending loop)

  I didnt want to read the email but as usual, out of curiosity, I  read it.
Well, honestly  i don't like forwarding emails either but this one was even worth posting it on my blog :)

Great philosophy. It is actually a marvelous way of thinking about life, people and about what you should do with your own life :)

Go ahead and enjoy the reading  ! I promise you it is worth it :
The Charlie  Schulz Philosophy

The  following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the  creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.
You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on  them.
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 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.

The point is, none of us remembers 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 
5. Think of five 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 simply are the ones who care the most 
Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life,
 like I did.
'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's 
 already tomorrow in Australia !'
