You don’t learn from successes; you don’t learn from awards; you don’t learn from celebrity; you only learn from wounds and scars and mistakes and failures. And that’s the truth.
– Jane Fonda
April 24, 1982 – Jane Fonda extended her reach into the home-video market with the release of Workout, the first of her many bestselling aerobics tapes. Hollywood royalty, fashion model, Oscar-winning actress, controversial anti-war activist. Fonda fit all of these descriptions by the late 1970s and 1980s, when she emerged in her latest incarnation–exercise guru.
April 23, 1961 – Never did Judy Garland so unify a collection of strangers than on this day in 1961 during the famous Carnegie Hall performance often called “the greatest night in showbiz history.” Her performance on this night was captured on a live recording that would go on to spend 95 weeks on the U.S. album charts (including 13 weeks at #1) and sweep the 1962 Grammys.
Wonderful Earth Day photographic memories from another WordPress Blogger.
On the first Earth Day I was working at a design office on 22nd Street in New York City near the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway. Watching from my 5th floor studio window, I saw the first parade participants marching downtown. I picked up my camera and ran outside. Here are a few things that I saw.
I usually don’t shoot people but Earth Day was such important event, I had to be part of it and that paid off. My photo was published on the cover of the Italian design magazine, domus.
And, yes, the photo was printed upside down-on purpose.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
– Albert Einstein
Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.
– Theodore Roosevelt
That’s the thing about Mother Nature, she really doesn’t care what economic bracket you’re in.
Keep close to Nature’s heart … and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
– John Muir
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
– Margaret Mead
April 22, 1970 – Earth Day, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time. Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
