FATS AND BIGGIE DAY
George Mitchell 1919
“In science, you have to be very aware of consensus,”
“It’s based on people’s theories and models at the time. And sometimes it’s damn wrong. And in this case it was damn wrong.”
Mitchell proved that there is no innovative force quite so powerful as the problem-solver able to balance the world’s disbelief with a resolute belief in himself.
*Ignore the wisdom of the crowd. You know when something is damn wrong. Be a problem-solver with a resolute belief in yourself.
Josh Hamilton 1981
Hamilton is immensely talented, but we have been reminded that his demons never will be exorcised and always will be only a drink or drug away.
BONUS: Ricky Williams 1977
“Marijuana, if you use it in a responsible way, accentuates the parts of sports that you love and helps you to do them better.”
*Exorcise your demons and exercise your body. Smoke weed responsibly and go to the gym. See what happens.
Mr. T 1952
“Some people expect a free ride in life, cruising by on good looks and luck. Let me tell you something right now, it don’t work that way.”
*Watch this classic Mr. T video to get your soul right. I pity the fool who doesn’t.
Lisa Edelstein 1966
“My creative juices are flowing. I really want to get more into the producing side so I can participate a little bit more.”
*Do you want to participate more at work? Get those creative juices flowing.
Notorious B.I.G 1972
“Stay far from timid. Only make moves when your heart’s in it and live the phrase: the sky’s the limit.”
*Listen to Biggie Smalls – the Brooklyn Thumper – the Notorious B.I.G. – Big Poppa.
Fats Waller 1904 – hot and sassy cornbread
One of the greatest of all jazz pianists
