Charles Schultz Philosophy

3 Aug 2008 | Wisdom |  11 comments

Deimos found a nice philosophy, and would like to share it here on his blog. Hopefully, those who read it may find it to be enlightening.

Deimos did not author the following article.

Charles Schultz Philosophy
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.

You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.


The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards.

They are the ones that care.

Pass this on to people who have made a difference in your life.

‘Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia ‘ (Charles Schultz)

Deimos’s Thoughts
Overall, it appears that this philosophy is emphasizing on the importance of friends, since good teachers during a person’s schooling period can be as good as friends. In the physical realm, Deimos feels quite alone at the moment, in terms of keeping in touch with friends.

Deimos Asks
After being in a relationship for quite some time, do you still keep in touch with your friends often? As in through actions in the physical realm, say telephone conversations, coming out for a drink and chat etc. Or are you the lazy type that prefers to rest at home?

    Very interesting indeed. I guess what you can also say about us human is that we are very selfish. We only remember things that involves us. This test really proves it….

    Most of the people don’t really noticed that the people closest to them are the people that care for us the most. They always think that the people that are very friend to them are the people that care for them. or something like that…

    In or not in a relationship… I like to stay at home, mostly communicate via internet, (msn, email blah blah)… lazy to go out. If really have to go out, also go out, have a drink or something, at night, with very close friends. Can’t stand the 3 seasons climate in Malaysia.
