Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”   —   Malcolm X

(It took me a little while to get this one started.  Just one of those days, I guess.  I should have seen the TO, TOMORROW and TODAY, but I saw the TION of EDUCATION, and that was enough to get the ball rolling.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(We all have the ability to learn from our mistakes.  The answers may not always be right in front of our faces, but if we dig deep enough we’ll discover where we went wrong, and/or what we could have done better.  This is the first Malcolm X quotation since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I hope to see more of them.  Besides the great message, it’s a very efficient quote.  Including the author’s name, it uses every letter except G, J, Q and Z.  It also puts me in mind of the movie Groundhog Day, with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, directed by Harold Ramis.  Wonderful movie!  It takes Bill Murray’s character a boatload of do-overs to get things right, but he learns more and more each time.  And, each time he becomes just that much better of a person.  His transformation, from a self-centered, insensitive, narcissistic jerk to a totally observant and compassionate human being, is both remarkable and highly entertaining.  If you’ve never seen the movie you have to add it to your to do list.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
