“Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.”
– Stevie Wonder
First of all, Stevie Wonder is, for me, one of the true Wonders of the World. There is something nearly beyond human in his music and lyrics. Last week I listened to a podcast about music. Someone mentioned that Stevie Wonder had agreed to appear at a charitable event for a small charity, and to do one song. The charity was more than thrilled. He arrived, practiced with their band, but instead of one take, he insisted on practicing that one song with them for three hours. About 20 takes. If he was going to do it, well, he was going to do it right. Even for a small charity. That, my friends, is why he is at the top, and why he has been there for so long . . . true character. A true Wonder of the World. (He makes me dance, especially when no one is looking.)
This quote was submitted by my son, Sam, who is a musician, employed in the music industry, and – like me – a very big Stevie fan. Thanks, Sam, for your contribution, and Thank You, too, for being the young man of character you are.
