“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
— Oscar Wilde, poet and playwright

Today’s Excerpt:

What strengths do you see in each of your family members?

Sometimes strengths are hidden in unlikely places. What some define as weakness, may be a strength.

Watch “Marcos Santos – Painting With Feet” (4-min video) by Embraer that tells the story of Marcos Santos, who can’t make use of his arms, but paints beautiful pictures with his feet.

Note that the link starts at the 30 second mark because the first 30 seconds are filler.

Discuss:

  • What are the strengths that may be seen by others as a weakness?
  • What do you think Marcos means when he says, “And so, I believe this: difficulties exist only to be overcome.”?
