Do You Plant Seeds?

March 12, 2016

“If You Don’t Know Where You’re Going, You’ll Probably End Up Somewhere Else” is an interesting book to read. I had purchased the paperback book for $1 at a check cashing store. A friend told me about a stack of used books for sale there; the books were almost hidden in a flat display case. Always on the hunt for a bargain book, I rarely pass up an opportunity to browse through more or less forgotten treasures.

I’m grateful the original owner of the used paperback book didn’t follow the directions printed on the last page. Otherwise, I would have missed the message written by David P. Campbell, Ph.D. “Tear out the last page of this book and tape it to the ceiling above your bed where you will see it every morning.” Pay attention to the message on that page from Henry Van Dyke, Ph.D. “Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look at the stars.”

It is a concise book filled with wisdom. Intrigued by the quotes that David Campbell shared, I penned an asterisk by two quotes that captivated me: “If you want something to happen, make a space for it.” It is an interesting concept to ponder as well as another, “…You’ve got to plant some seeds, and you’d better plant a lot of them, because you can’t tell which ones will sprout.”
