Will Smith Quote “Running and Reading”

As I have said before, I really enjoy collecting quotes. I found this one by Will Smith a while ago, but I just have not gotten around to adding it to the “Quotes” section of my site till now. It’s very positive and inspirational.

The Keys to Life are Runnin’ & Readin.

Key to Life #1 – Running:

When you’re running and that voice in your head that starts saying to you, “slow down, your ankles are hurting” tries to get you to stop, that’s when you keep on running and breakthrough.

When you learn to defeat that person inside that tries to get you to stop, you can defeat anything that stands in front of you. Anything that’s blocking your way toward your true purpose, destination and goal.

Key to Life #2 – Reading

Millions and billions of people that have lived before us have solved the same problems that you’re experiencing today. And they wrote down what they learned and discovered in books.

Those books are available to all of us, to tap into and gain that accelerated knowledge and use it to our advantage.

Any problem we may face – can be found in a book somewhere along with the solution to that problem.

Some Jack O’Lanterns

Hannah and I carved some pumpkins this weekend. We are planning on carving a few more before Halloween.

Transformers Ornaments

Today my desk got just that much cooler. While at Fred Meyer this weekend I spied a Transformer Christmas ornament. This just begs the questions; why is anyone selling Christmas ornaments in October? I guess the answer is because people like me buy them.

The Transformer ornament was of the evil Megatron. He goes great on my desk next to my Optimus Prime ornament I got last year around this time. So now, whenever I look over my laptop screen I can catch the two Cybertron learders fighting it out.

Quote From Shantaram

I collect quotes. Currently I am reading a book titled “Shantaram” which was recommended to me by my brother Abe. Last night I wrote down this little quote from it and added it to my collection.

“Nothing grieves more deeply or pathetically than one half of a great love that isn’t meant to be.”

Cashing In On Palin

Some of you may be wondering if the locals in Alaska have been trying to cash in on governor Sarah Palin’s new found fame. The answer is yes. Just check out this picture I snapped at a local tourist shop.
