A life well-lived

Thursday March 5, 2009 #101

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.   

~William Jennings Bryan

From frequent contributor BE:

These are quite similar, but #1 reminded me of something my Dad told me when I was learning to play golf at the age of nine or ten years old.  He made the earth/golf connection as well:

1)”I hope that my achievements in life shall be these — that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I’ve done and who I’ve been.” ~C. Hoppe

2)”Leave the golf course in better condition than you found it; fix an extra ball mark; repair your divots and one more: always rake your bunkers.” ~My Dad

How is your life looking?  Any divots to fill in?
