I met a beautiful cactus today, so I told it, "You're looking sharp today."
"I'm just a cactus, " it said.
"You have a point there," I replied.
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
Ben Franklin tells us that:
Patience is a virtue.
When you're a young person, it can be hard to be patient, especially in a world filled with smart phones, tablets, and game consoles. It's easy to get spoiled, to expect quick results . . . immediate gratification.
But some things just take time . . . like mastering a violin or becoming a champion swimmer or realizing a dream. Epictetus (ep ik TEE tus), a Greek philosopher, tells us:
No great thing is created suddenly.
In other words, it can take time to do great things. If you're trying to create something good and wonderful in your life, set goals, work hard, and then be patient.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
