Words of Wisdom from Tony Dungy

From Tony Dungy’s book “Quiet Strength”:

We might even become famous. But in the end, what will it mean?

What will people remember us for? Are other people’s lives better because of the way we lived? Did we make a difference? Did we use to the fullest the gifts and abilities God gave us? Did we give our best effort, and did we do it for the right reasons?

God’s definition of success is really one of significance –the significant difference our lives can make in the lives of others. This significance doesn’t show up in win-loss records, long resumes, or the trophies on our mantels. It’s found in the hearts and lives of those we’ve come across who are in some way better because of the way we lived.

I saw this quote around but it only made me want to get the book.

Sage wisdom on Democrats

BurtPrelutsky.com — Burt spelled it out perfectly:

“It doesn’t happen too often, but every once in a while someone forwards something to me from the Internet that I haven’t seen before and that actually grabs my attention. In this case, it was a series of ways that one could easily identify a liberal. I mean aside from asking them if they happen to be journalists, judges, social workers, teachers, professors, illegal aliens, actors, musicians or convicted felons.”

“Here it is, with a few of my own modifications:

(1) A liberal is someone who thinks Republicans are waging a war on women, but that the Muslim world isn’t.

(2) A liberal is someone who says to a pregnant woman: “Don’t smoke, it’ll hurt your baby,” but tells her it’s quite okay to abort that same baby.

(3) A liberal is someone who thinks Fox News lies, but Obama doesn’t.

(4) A liberal is someone who lives in a gated community or behind a high wall, but says that a border fence won’t work.

(5) A liberal is someone who wails about “corporate welfare,” but thinks it’s great that Obama bailed out General Motors to save union contracts and blew a billion tax dollars on certain-to-fail green energy companies in exchange for campaign contributions.al

(6) A liberal is someone who protested the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and proclaimed the Patriot Act fascistic, until Barack Obama took office.”

 

I’ll add a couple of my own:

A liberal wants to keep abortion safe, legal and always an option; but salt needs to be heavily regulated and restricted.

A liberal thinks a woman’s body is her own, and permanently enslaved to the DNC.

A liberal thinks overpopulation is a huge problem, but open-border immigration is not.

A liberal thinks a Court decision on abortion is “a right” and “law of the land”, but the second amendment is not.

A liberal thinks that “Congress shall make no law” means Congress shall make laws and regulate.

A liberal thinks “we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt.”

A liberal thinks its greedy to keep your own money but taking it from others is not. — (paraphrasing Thomas Sowell)

As  Thomas Sowell puts it:

“I have never understood why it is “greed” to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.” —
