Lyndon B. Johnson 1908
“There is division in the American house now. There is divisiveness among us all tonight. And holding the trust that is mine, as President of all the people, I cannot disregard the peril to the progress of the American people and the hope and prospect of peace for all people…. With America’s sons in the fields faraway, with America’s future under challenge right here at home … I do not believe that I should devote an hour or a day of my time to any personal partisan causes…. Accordingly, I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.”
*How many politicians would walk away because of division on their watch? Today is the day for you to step aside if you don’t think you are doing a good job. Let someone else do your job as you find something more suited for you.
Tom Ford 1961
Live by the Rule of 4
“Four hours of sleep and four baths a day are the trick to being of sound mind and body.”
*Sleep for 4 hours and take 4 baths today.
Cesar Millan 1969
“Just like the dogs on the show, my life tends to become filled with anxiety when I am scurrying around working feverishly in my own strength, or barking loudly to get my own way, rather than following my Leader. If I were to stop, attain a “calm and surrendered state” through prayer, and wait patiently for God to show me the next step, things would go much more smoothly.”
*Stop. Attain a calm and surrendered state through prayer. Wait for God to show you the next step. Afterwards, play with your dog – it’s good for both of your souls.
Breanna Stewart 1994
Breanna Stewart, one of the WNBA’s best young stars, recently got injured playing overseas during the WNBA offseason.
*Work an extra job to support you and your family, but run the risk of breaking down physically and mentally.
Aaron Paul 1979 – watch Breaking Bad
“Yeah, Mr. White! Yeah, science!”
*Start at the beginning and binge watch Breaking Bad
Paul Reubens 1952 – Reuben sandwich
Nothing brings a star crashing to earth like a kid-show host charged with exposing himself in a porno theater
For a great Reuben – grill the sandwich slowly and under some pressure, so the bread gets toasty brown and buttery crisp, the meat gets warmed through, and the cheese is just melted enough to be oozy.
*Enjoy this Reuben (go easy on that Russian dressing) sandwich while watching Paul Reubens as Pee Wee Herman. Wash it down with a Pee Wee Herman cocktail.
