Morning Message

Good Morning ASD.

What does the following quote mean to you?

Everyone holds his fortune in his own hands, like a sculptor the raw material he will fashion into a figure.  But it's the same with that type of artistic activity as with all others:  We are merely born with the capability to do it.  The skill to mold the material into what we want must be learned and attentively cultivated.  ---Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Some of us might be reluctant to see our lives as works of art, but it can be a helpful metaphor for how we go about living.  The raw material for each of our lives has been given to us by fate, genetics, God, nature or whatever else anyone chooses to believe.  It is up to us to take what we are given and through our actions mold it into something worth showing the world.  The victories, the defeats, the half starts, and the inevitable obstacles all have the chance of becoming a necessary part to your final masterpiece.  Keep learning.  Don't quit.  Put your character above all else.  Become an artist of life.

As always the advice is free and you don't have to take it.

Be good.

Mr. C
