Note: my daughter sent me these quotes by the incredible Andy Rooney. There’s only enough room to show some of them – will show the rest real soon. Enjoy!

I’ve learned

… that the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

…. that when you’re in love, it shows!

… that just one person saying to me, “You’ve made my day!” makes my day.

… having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.

… that being kind is more important than being right.

… that you should never say no to a gift from a child.

… that I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in some other way.

… that no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.

… that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.

… that simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child, did wonders for me as an adult.

… that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

… that we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for.

… that money doesn’t buy class.

… that it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.

… that under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

… that to ignore the facts does not change the facts.

… that when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.

… that love, not time, heals all wounds.

More, next time!
