Spirit ~ Wilferd Peterson

“Walk with the dreamers,
the believers,
the courageous,
the cheerful,
the planners,
the doers,
the successful people
with their heads in the clouds
and their feet on the ground.

Let their spirit
ignite a fire within you
to leave this world better than when you found it…”

~ Wilferd Peterson

 

I also came across another apparently extended version of this quote, but unfortunately wasn’t able to figure out the original phrasing or verify the source…

 

“Walk with the dreamers,
the believers,
the courageous,
the cheerful,
the planners,
the doers,
the successful people
with their heads in the clouds
and their feet on the ground.

Walk with those who have ideals,
with zest to help and lift,
to create and contribute.
Let their spirit
ignite a fire within you
to leave this world better than when you found it.

Associate with the creative people wherever you find them.
Make friends with them,
go where they are,
talk with them,
listen to them,
be open and receptive to them,
let them inspire you.
Catch their attitudes,
their way of thinking and living.”

— Wilferd A. Peterson

    Great quote, Oliver! I especially love the “leave this world better than when you found it” part. Something I try to live by.

      Thanks Jessica, glad you like it! I think leaving the world a little better than we found it, should be a “universal ambition”. And in a way we encounter these “chances to make a difference” every single day…
