IHAVE LEARNED by Andy Rooney

Postby sweets » Wed May 13, 2009 4:50 pm

as you know
i like to share you best of what i read
enjoy reading and tell me what do you think 8-)



I've learned.... That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

I've learned.... That just one person saying to me, 'You've made my day!' makes my day.

I've learned.... That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.

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 the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

I've learned.... That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.

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 we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.

I've learned..... That money doesn't buy class.

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 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 opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.

I've learned.... That when you harbour bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.

I've learned... That I wish I could have told my Dad that I love him one more time before he 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 everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.

Hi Sweety!!!!
It's been awhile we've chated.... How are you? How is your family? How is your work?
So I like those words cuz they're based on the life's background and I think everyone felt most of them on their expierence.
The greatest words to my mind:
I've learned..... That we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.
