ENLIGHTENED PERSPECTIVE

If you will take the time to read these, you'll come away
with an enlightened perspective. The subjects affect us all on
a daily basis:

They're written by Andy Rooney, a man who has the gift of saying so
much with so few words.

Enjoy.......

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

I've learned .... That when you're in love, it shows.

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 or a dog 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 I can always pray for someone when I don't have
the strength to help him in some other way.

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

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 no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.

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 when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock
elsewhere.

I've learned .... That I wish I could have told my Mom that I love her
one more time before she 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.

Wow - these are fantastic! Wonderful! Never thought I'd equate my life to a roll of toilet paper, but man there is some truth to THAT one - it IS going faster the closer to the end that you get. Thanks for some great thought provoking tidbits - I have always enjoyed Andy Rooney - he seems like a modern day Mark Twain.

Suzen,
My mom always said that when I got older, time will just fly by...yup, as the toliet paper roll quickly goes toward the end....that is too funny, but true.

Glad you liked Any Rooney's thoughts...
