  • I really liked this post. Simple, yet very effective. It reminds you what the greatest things in your life really are, and to cherish them.

  • Thanks for the kind remarks, Frank. I love inpiration driven by personal reflection. I think personal reflection opens the doors to creativity and movtivation. ;-)

  • The Greatest Oxymoron: A wife

  • @Donny:
    Not true if she’s also your best friend. There comes a time when you realize that looking elsewhere is just a waste of time. ;-)

  • Nah, you took that wrong. Its the greatest oxymoron cause you can hate them and love them at the same time. I guess thats not really a Big Shrimp, but I didn’t know what else to call it. Greatest Contradiction?

  • @Donny:
    Ahh… I got ya. Agreed. Significant others can linger on the fine line of many fronts.

  • All good. I am having difficulty with #31 though. I would have thought that the greatest love would definitely need to go beyond oneself.

    In fact, Marc the greatest beauty is simplicity and the greatest feeling is satisfaction, really, a boy of 15 which i am, has also felt it. It is really “the” greatest feeling. The other things simply are magnificent, it has certainly enhanced my philosophy on life.
    Thanks!

  • i beg to differ on the greatest mistake. i think its not quitting, but GIVING UP. many people quit, and i think its about reaching a threshold of impatience or self-doubt that is all but human to feel. i always believed that its how you pick yourself up after quitting is what matters most. just my two cents.
