Focus and Priorities

We have thousands of times more available information than Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln. Yet which of us would think ourselves a thousand times more educated or more serviceable to our fellowmen than they? The sublime quality of what these two men gave to us—including the Declaration of Independence and the Gettysburg Address—was not attributable to their great resources of information, for their libraries were comparatively small by our standards. Theirs was the wise and inspired use of a limited amount of information.
Available information wisely used is far more valuable than multiplied information allowed to lie fallow.

Hi Cindy,

I don't know why my comments don't seem to "take" at blogspot blogs. I keep getting kicked out to some other Google place when I try to publish a comment. Anyway, just know that I'm always amazed at what you come up with and how well you keep up on loved ones' special events. It was so fun to have you, Bob, Anna & Dave & Ben, Clark & Jenna here this weekend. Looking towards the 13th with anticipation!

Love you,


"It's joyful reading your blog. Love it! Thanks for making the effort to enlighten and entertain us all."
