Jack’s Winning Words 8/11/15
“Think like a proton and stay positive!” (Seen on Facebook) Looking back, I wish that I had taken a course in physics instead of physic-al education. Knowing about protons, neurons, atoms and quarks is more important (in the larger scheme of things) than learning how to dribble. Did you make similar choices? But, life is what it is. Proton is from the Greek and means, first. So, “first” in our mind as we plan this day should be… “I’m going to think like a proton!” ;-) Jack
FROM RF AT UM: This came at a good time! Currently I'm sitting at DTW by myself worrying about my flight to Maine today...there's a big storm headed east and I'm just hoping I can make it there without any major delays. I definitely needed the reminder to stay positive :)====JACK: I read an article last week which said that airline pilots put the safety of the passengers 2nd in the list of priorities. #1 is their own safety.
FROM TARMART REV: A very "protonious" statement, I must say!!====JACK: Another positive statement: "All you need is LOVE is all you need!"
FROM CHESTER THE GOOD: If Westinghouse hadn't thought negative, we wouldn't have AC. Only Edison's DC.====JACK: I didn't know that Edison had a role in naming our nation's capitol.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: It's a little easier to stay positive on a beautiful summer 84 degree sunny day, even surrounded by "moving" boxes to be unpacked! A positive attitude is certainly an "upper" in any situation, and there is almost always a positive side to things, I've found! Go for Positive Protons!====JACK: I once preached a sermon, "How to stay positive in a negative world." Now, where did I file it? I remember one of the points was to associate with positive people.
FROM SBP IN FLORIDA: I remember reading Rob Bell's 'What Do We Talk About When We Talk About God". I was totally amazed about the breadth and his information re atoms, etc. I just would like to have an aspect of my mind to assimilate it. And in addition, I believe there are further dimensions being pursued.====JACK: I remember that section. I would reread it, but I loaned the book to someone, and it hasn't come back. Maybe I'll just go to Barnes & Noble and get another.
FROM JS OF MSU: Hey, don't criticize basketball players and jocks!====JACK: Hey, I was one! You probably didn't take physics, either.
