He was born on November 26, 1922, and his friends called him “Sparky.” He became “the highest paid, most widely read cartoonist ever.” The very first Peanuts comic strip, written by Charles M. Schulz, appeared in seven newspapers on October 2, 1950.
A few good words from Sparky:
There’s a difference between a philosophy and a bumper sticker.
Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.
I love mankind; it’s people I can’t stand.
I have a new philosophy. I’m only going to dread one day at a time.
All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
