Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
- H. Jackson Brown
OK! This quote that I got from SP today is just silly. Look at those names! In that times that these wonderful people were alive, and in the professions or lifestyles they were in, were very different than the blow and go society of today. Mother Teresa was a NUN! Hello....no 8 hour work day, kids to chase and deliver to a million places, no husband/wife/partner to cook for, no house to clean, no classes to attend (and mind you I'm talking about one person doing all of this!!) no nothing that fills your days like that. SURE if I were in the days of these folks I'd have more free time to do things. But I'm not and I don't have the free time. Do I think we can create space in our limited timed days...yes, it's all about time management (something I've yet to conquer but I'm trying dang it!). But to compair the world in which we live to these folks is just crazy!
