Jack’s Winning Words 8/2/17
“There is a precept by which I have lived.  Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes.”  (Hannah Arendt)  Even though Arendt died in 1975, it’s interesting to see how her words can fit different situations…personal, work-related and even political.  She was an author whose writings have greatly influenced thinking in America.  Aside from this, Hannah’s is a help as we sometimes try to make sense of the events that happen in our lives.    ;-)  Jack

FROM BLAZING OAKS:  Hannah Arendt was sagacious in her writings, and spot on at saying such things as this succinctly and well! Can't believe she has been gone for 42 yrs!!  Wise words, and easy to  commit to memory! You take what comes, and deal with it, but keep that expectation for the best! Thanks for this, Jack!====JACK:  As it sometimes happens, influential people aren't always well known by the general public.  Hannah seems to be one of those.  Her quote today is such a simple one, but it can be applied to so many situations, personal and public.
