About Columbus Day

Columbus Day is a national holiday in many countries of the Americas and elsewhere which officially celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Americas on October 12, 1492.

“Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity.”

~ L. Frank Baum
(Lyman Frank Baum was an American author chiefly famous for his children’s books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels.)

I love Frank’s words above.  Please notice that he did not say that intelligence,Columbus Day -- Columbus: The Four Voyages, 1492-1504money or influence led Columbus to discover the new world.  He distinctly said IMAGINATION.

And he lumps Ben Franklin into the same mindset.

What kind of world would we have without the wonderful creative imagination of folks like Columbus!!

Remember those words when you feel discouraged with your business or your life as it seems at the moment.  Anyone can become the next pioneer, like Columbus!

One final quote to put this into current day humor:

“If Columbus had an advisory committee he would probably still be at the dock”

~Arthur Goldberg
