Bertrand Russell 1872

“Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.”

The longing for love

The search for knowledge

Pity for the suffering of mankind


Reggie Jackson 1946

He no longer squats but does quad and hamstring work to keep things in balance

*Do this quad and hamstring workout, and yes, “Mr. October” was born in May.


Pope John Paul II 1920

His response to personal pain wasn’t to retreat from the world, but to embrace it with the love of Jesus himself, whose Sacred Heart is simultaneously the icon of profound pain and perfect charity.

*How can you grow from your most recent pain?


Yannick Noah 1960

What would you advise him about retirement?

YN: “I did something I loved. For 10 years we had to do little gigs here and there. I loved it. You don’t need to prove or show people anything. Do something you like. I don’t see myself as a singer. I see myself as someone who loves what he does, and that shows.”

*Envision what your life will be like in retirement. What can you do – that you love?


Jack Johnson 1975

*Make your dreams a reality and listen to Jack Johnson for inspiration.

CROSSOVER: FOOD – Banana pancakes for breakfast.


Tina Fey 1970 – Grilled Chicken Sandwiches with Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil

*Listen to Jack Johnson while making this sandwich and then enjoy it while watching 30 Rock – “Sandwich Day.”

Wash it down with a Liz Lemonade cocktail.
