Winning Words 1/17/13
“Success is simple. Do what’s right, the right way, at the right time.” (Arnold Glason) I don’t know about you, but this quote reminds me of a character in the Rocky and Bullwinkle show…not Boris, Natasha, or Mr. Know-it-all…but Dudley Do-Right, the Canadian Mountie who never quite seems to do it right. BTW, Glason has another quote which relates to the first. “It’s a long way from words to deeds.” ;-) Jack
FROM BBC IN ILLINOIS: Loved that show and your thoughts; always enjoy your posts.////FROM JACK: The thing I liked about Rocky and Bullwinkle was that there were always messages hidden with in the cartoons. BTW, Winning Words now appears 5 days a week in West Bloomfield Patch.com, an internet local news source.
FROM PLAIN FOLKS CHESTER: Right!////FROM JACK: Righty, tighty!
FROM TAMPA SHIRL: Actions speak louder than words.Life is all about making decisions every day. It was interesting to see the musical Wicked on stage last night. I was never eager to see it, but some of my grandchildren and friends really like the music. It was also interesting to see how many people are out at the theater on a Wednesday night in Tampa. I read this today and thought I would pass it along...."Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties." Helen Keller////FROM JACK: It's a good thing when we get to see how the
other half lives. Wicked is a word that has a generational meaning. Even the word, right, has a generational meaning. It's always good to be in touch with "the other half."
FROM BLAZING OAKS: MY DAUGHTER AND HER BOY COUSIN OF THE SAME AGE (49 NOW) HAD A BALL, BANDYING ABOUT SAYINGS FROM DUDLEY-DO-RIGHT! SHADES OF THE PAST! :-) IT WOULD SEEM TRUE, IF ALL THE STARS ALIGN "RIGHT", SUCCESS WILL FOLLOW. IT'S GETTING ALL THE 'RIGHTS' RIGHT THAT MIGHT BE A CHALLENGE. FORTUNATELY, GOD'S ANSWERS ARE OFTEN WISER THAN OUR PRAYERS.////FROM JACK: Personally, I liked Mr. Know-it-all. He was sort of a pre-Google character. Speaking of Google, do you know the Barney Google song?
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Good ole' Dudley...he always tried to do good but never quite got there. The point is though, he always tried to do his best. That's a wonderful way to live.////FROM JACK: Do you remember the criminal Dudley never seemed to catch...Snidely Whiplash? And the girl who he never seemed to catch...Nell Fenwick? Those were the days, my friend.
