All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

“These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.”

(...) “Think what a better world it would be if we all -the whole world- had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess. And it is still true, no matter how old you are-when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.”

Goodness Of Heart

(...) I do not give the name hero to those who have triumphed by infinite thought or
by sheer physical strength but only to those made great by goodness of heart.
Beethoven wrote: "I recognise no sign of superiority in mankind other than goodness."
Where the character is not great, there is no great man,
there is not even a great artist, nor a great man of action;
there are only idols unearthed for the cheap and
short-lived applause of the multitude;
time will efface them altogether.
Outward success matters little.
The only thing is to be great, not to appear so.
