Winning Words 4/9/13
“Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, ‘I’m possible!’’” (Audrey Hepburn) The “madness” is finally over. For the Wolverines, the possible became impossible. Changing the subject…Actress Audrey Hepburn was more than a pretty face. Her passion was to work among profoundly underprivileged children, and she lived with them in Africa, Asia and South America. She was a possibility thinker and doer. ;-) Jack
FROM WALMART REV: Nice to see Michigan back in the spot light once again...many other university would have given anything to have been in their place.////JACK: I just came from listening to a group of Middle School girls and boys participate in an Oratorical Contest. Even though first place winners were chosen, all of the kids were outstanding. Ultimately, it's not the winning or the losing...it's in the participation.
FROM PL IN MICHIGAN: Why am I not surprised hat you are he only person I know who could link Audrey Hepburn to the Wolverines and last night's game! Well Done!!!////JACK: Using the wide angle lens...there are things more important than a basketball game. Audrey Hepburn was also a part of the Dutch Underground during WW 2. Today...she "My Fair Lady." This is not to take away from a great Final Two game last night.
FROM CHURCH LADY LOU: Love it!////JACK: On Facebook, you'd probably write, "like."
FROM LK IN OHIO: Will Burke return for his junior year at UM?////JACK: If not, Spike will be there. No one's irreplaceable.
FROM TAMPA SHIRL: Speaking of impossible, Pop will be 103 this month and his granddaughter and grandson have just bought him a neat looking three wheel motorcycle for him to ride around the block. They also take care of him and of a mentally challenged brother who live down the street together. When families take care of each other, there is much more happiness in the world.////JACK: Helping just one person in need is like lighting a candle in a dark world. One line from an old song puts it this way..."And, if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be!"
FROM BLAZING OAKS: This is a keeper for sure. I never thought of "I'm possible" as an adaptation of the word! I once thought it was impossible for Bill and I to sell our home, our business, and cart two boys off to seminary, but it proved very possible, as have many other "impossible" situations! Life has untold surprises! What's not to love?!////JACK: I'll bet you thought of Audrey Hepburn as just another movie star....I know I did.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: It's too bad she didn't say..."for God". I'm not sure if she believed in God but she worked hard in this life.////JACK: Obviously, her quote is taken out of context, but I don't think that she intended to make a theological statement. It seems that she is just encouraging people not to "give up."
