I’ve learned…. That being kind is more important than being right.

I’ve learned…. That you should never say no to a gift from a child.

I’ve learned…. That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act

                    goofy with.

I’ve learned…. That  sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold  and a heart to understand.

I’ve learned…. That  simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child

                          did wonders for me as an adult.

I’ve learned…. That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

I’ve learned…. That money doesn’t buy class.

I’ve learned…. That it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.animal five

I’ve learned… That under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

I’ve learned…. That to ignore the facts does not change the facts.

I’ve learned…. That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to

                          hurt you.

I’ve learned…. That love, not time, heals all wounds.

I’ve learned…. That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter

                          than I am.

I’ve learned…. That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.

I’ve learned… That life is tough, but I’m tougher.

I’ve learned…. That opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.

I’ve learned…. That I wish I could have told my Mum and Dad that I love them one more time before

                          passed away.

I’ve learned…. That one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to

                          eat them.

I’ve learned…. That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

I’ve learned…. That when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, that you’re

                           hooked for life.

I’ve learned…. That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth

                          occurs while you’re climbing it.

I’ve learned…. That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

    • You mean the liberal Andy Rooney or the liberals trying to make him more wise than he was, actually STOLE all those wonderful sayings from many sources?

      LOL! I’m shocked. Thanks again Daniel, I can always count on you to check all my emails, because as you can see, I’ll post just about anything from my emails if they amuse me.
