Pausitively Tuesday: Drum Beats

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

Henry David Thoreau

PAUSEitively Tuesday: Nature vs Nurture

“Youth is the gift of nature

but age is a work of art.”

Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

Boogie while you’re young

Pierce your tongue

Dye your hair green

Eat fat, not the lean

Don’t give a lick what makes you tick

Eat, drink and be merry

because if you tarry

you’ll soon be too old

all covered with mold

And have to scrap it off with a stick

 

What you see is what you get Charlie Brown

We humans tend to think that because people are capable of change they will change.  Most of us hope and wait for the other person to do the changing.

Maya Angelou said it most succinctly:

“When people show you who they are,

believe them.”

Lucy will NEVER hold the football for Charlie Brown in the comic strip “Peanuts” . . . because their creator is deceased.
