Inspiration from George Burns

Estimated Lesson Time: 1 minutes

George Burns (1896-1996) was one of the greatest comedians/entertainers of several generations.

Success is having high self-esteem. “I can’t afford to die; I’d lose too much money.”

Success is loving what you do. “Fall in love with what you do for a living. I don’t care what it is. It works.” George also said, “Retire? I’m gonna stay in show business until I’m the only one left.”

Success is sharing your wealth. In 1985, George Burns made a generous gift to establish the George Burns Intensive Care Unit at the Motion Picture & Television Hospital.

Success is motivation. “Don’t stay in bed, unless you can make money in bed.”

Success is knowing what happiness means to you. “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring close-knit family... in another city.”

Success is appreciation. “Nice to be here? At my age it’s nice to be anywhere.”

Success is making keen observations. “Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair.”

Success is making a contribution to society. In remembrance of George Burns, President Bill Clinton summed it up best saying, “He enabled us to see humor in the toughest of times and laugh together as a nation. We will miss him greatly.”
