healtheworld.jpg
There are many quotes that I have read & collected over the years that have helped to sum up my life’s path and the learnings that I pass onto others. Todays daily writing is dedicated to “Thomas Woodrow Wilson.”

‘ (Thomas Woodrow Wilson was the 28th President of the United States from 1913 – 1921) ‘
**Please Note: that this daily blog post was meant to be a written piece about Thomas Woodrow Wilson’s famous quote, this was not intended to be a political piece… but in writing my thoughts I thought I gave note to the good that he became famous for but didn’t show his for the negative values in his beliefs. “No Offense Intended.”

Thomas Woodrow Wilson Wrote:

“You are not here merely to prepare to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”

What Thomas Woodrow Wilson says here to me is that my vision for my path in this world is for me to move ahead in my life without comparison to any other persons achievements; being the best person that I can be in my own here and now.

Being proud of who I am and stand strong in my values, morals & convictions, enriching my own life’s spirit and in return gaining and living a life with a deep desire to love without fear or conjecture of the people around me, growing within myself; one day at a time, expecting and accepting nothing more than me being 100% true in all that I do.

I feel that What Thomas Woodrow Wilson is also saying is that me lessen our selves & our abilities if we strive to be anything other than the best person that we can be; both for ourselves and in the service of others.

what he says in his opening line is this “You are not here merely to prepare to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply”what he is saying is that in order for the world to live in a more plentiful and sufficed environment we much gain knowledge, new skills, striving forth in the giving and teaching of others both in mateship and in the education of others.

It is indeed our path in life to enrich the world with our questionings our knowledge and our learnings, growing our days world so that tomorrows world can grow and continue in the development of new technology, new understanding, and far greater development in knowledge and understandings, pushing the world and our societies in greatness for tomorrow’s future.

Thomas Woodrow Wilson lived up to his famous quote “You are not here merely to prepare to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand ”  It was very that was a man who worked hard and strove hard to live up to his own famous words.

Thomas Woodrow Wilson wanted the world to be a better place and in doing so the following things were just a few of his accomplishments;

In August 1920, the 19th Amendment became law and with this law American women gained the right to vote. (The 19th amendment gives men and women of the United States Of America equal voting rights. The amendment states that the right of citizens to vote “shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex”).

Thomas Woodrow Wilson was an advocate for democracy and world peace, whilst he was the 28th President he led a campaign “Keep Us Out Of The War” – he that tried to keep the USA out of the world war. In the end the USA went to war because Thomas Woodrow believed that “The World Must Be Made For Sae Democracy.” At the ending of  President Woodrow Wilson helped to negotiate a peace treaty that included a plan for the League of Nations (a group of countries that would help to negotiate disputes and help to keep peace in the world) after World War 1 & In 1919 he was awarded a Nobel Peace Price for his efforts in and for the League Of Nations.


In many ways I think that the 28th President of the United States Of America was one of last real political gentlemen but his well know racial behaviours towards black people and migrants was his worst worldly written trait… “For all his talk of even handedness,” Berg writes, “Wilson did not consider the races fundamentally equal, and he had no intention of equalizing them under the law.” – historically written by A. Scott Berg.

I Liked The 28th President – Thomas Woodrow Wilson for his famous quote You are not here merely to prepare to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”

Thomas Woodrow Wilson drives my way into helping others in learning what they can to better themselves and those around them, he has shown me through his words that the world needs us all as individuals to work as a unified group… pushing forth against the people who hold as at arm’s length from world peace, but for all the good that he did… his judgements and racial tones became the very undoing of his outward appearance of being known as having one view but acting out another. He was known for looking like a buttoned-up, moralistic and rigid preacher’s son.

I think it’s sad that a man who did so much good for our world and for who own country was a man of his own judgemental views, views that kept the division rather than giving the unity to the very people of whom he served.


Michael Jackson is an author of music who advocates the very messages relayed in
Thomas Woodrow Wilson’s famous quote You are not here merely to prepare to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow

There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me

If you want to know why
There’s love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear of dread
We stop existing and start living

The it feels that always
Love’s enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

And the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify its soul
Though it’s plain to see
This world is heavenly
Be god’s glow

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plow shares

We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

You and for me
