An important part of my daily read is the Will Rogers Facebook page as shown above. It, along with the half-dozen books about him on my bookshelf give me a lifetime of material for this blog at RJsCorner.
Will inspires me for his wit, wisdom, and humor. But maybe even more so for his endurance as he put out thousands of “posts” of his day.
Will inspires me with his method of delivery. One of his most famous quotes is “All I know is what I read in the newspaper” and then he would proceed to put his spin on the story. The vast majority of my posts start out as a quote from what I read around the Internet. I then expand on it with my own interpretation.
Will inspires me with his calm patience. I get attacked on occasion for what I say. I, like him, try to keep the attitude of “I never met a man I didn’t like” and deal with those upset yahoos with calmness and a sense of humor. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
Will inspired me with his writing style. Kind of laid back and nothing too formal. My header above has one of my favorite quotes from him. I try to do the best I can and don’t take life too serious. Even that gets me in trouble once in a while as people just take what I say here too serious when I mean it to be tongue-in-cheek.
Will inspires me….
