    Default Words Of Wisdom

    Alright, so I was thinking about posting a positive thread that everyone can contribute to. Then I remembered someone mentioning how many people out there check out this website. People from different age ranges that read what we write and are somewhat influenced. And that's how this thread came about...


    We all go through many situations during our lifetime that make us who we are. That make us stronger, wiser and ready for future obstacles that we may encounter. But most of the time we are not as prepared as we would like to be. In our minds we say "Damn! I wish I had known before..." So we search for knowledge where we can find it.


    Now I know K.O. is filled with many types of intellectuals who express themselves to the fullest. So let me hear some of your "WORDS OF WISDOM".

    "Only God Can Judge Me"- Tupac, and no not the song, he would always say in his interviews, "no one has the right to judge me except god"

    and

    "Never make a promise you know you can't keep/fulfill" heard that from my teachers and my father, say yes only when you know you gonna come through, if you doubt the promise even for a second then just say no

    Good ones, Prince. Yea, the second one I also have heard from teachers. It makes up who you are because if you can't keep promises then you can't be trusted for much.

    It was Carl Sagan's idea to turn Voyager's camera back toward the planet that launched the spacecraft in order to reveal to that planet's inhabitants their "true circumstance and condition." After much resistance, Dr. Sagan prevailed, and on February 14, 1990, from a distance of 6.4 billion kilometers, Voyager 1 captured this image of our Earth. Here the entire world fills only 0.12 pixel and appears as a tiny crescent of light. The apparent rays of light are not sunbeams, but scattering off the camera's optics, a result of pointing it so close to the Sun. Now one of the most famous images ever taken from space, this humbling perspective of our beloved home is a part of Dr. Sagan's invaluable legacy.




    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

    Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

    The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

    It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.

    Don't be sorry OKG, jokes are always welcomed. As long as they're funny and done in good taste. Besides, we can't be serious all the time.

    One thing that I have learned, specially these last couple of years, is that we should appreciate the things we have. People in general take things for granted. Things like: the good situations we are in, people we care about, and being able to have good health. There are many people out there living in worser places than you are, people that have lost family members, and also people that can't walk or live a normal life because of health reasons. Just understand how lucky you are to have those things that others wish they had.


    Be proud of where you're from. Tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. And also maximize the attributes that you have, that others wish they could have. Don't take it for granted.
