Wordy Wednesday

It's Wednesday.  For many, it's one of the busier days of the week.  You realize all the work that must be done before Friday.  Maybe you have commitments in the evening that tie you up. Maybe you are just tired after a couple long days at work.

Regardless, Wordy Wednesday here at 'The Sunset Won't' is a quote, short passage or verse that I enjoy and want to share with you.  Today's quotes are from Randy Pausch, a former professor at Carnegie Mellon University and author of the Last Lecture.

When you're screwing up and nobody is saying anything to you anymore it means they gave up.  You're critics are the ones telling you they love you and still care.

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Brick walls let us show our dedication.

Don't bail, the best gold is at the bottom of barrels of crap.

Don't complain; just work harder.

Find the best in everybody; no matter how long you have to wait for them to show it.

Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.

Do any of these connect with you this week?  

If you have not yet seen "The Last Lecture" I recommend finding it and watching it.  It is just over an hour but is full of fantastic material.  Or it is also in a book format.

    I love that one.

    I saw a special on the last lecture a few months ago. So inspirational.


Life is busy, thanks for taking a moment to leave a note!
