Who Remembers Andy Rooney?

Who Remembers Andy Rooney?
This week, I thought I would share some of the wisdom he shared with friends.

I’ve learned that the best classroom 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 small child fall asleep in your arm is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.

I’ve learned 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 any other way, that sometimes a person needs a hand to hold and a heart to understand.

I’ve learned that we should be glad that God doesn’t give us everything we ask for, that money doesn’t buy class, 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 I’ve learned  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, that no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.

I’ve learned that opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you missed, that a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks, that when your newborn grandchild takes your finger in his hand, you’re hooked, that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it And finally I’ve learned that the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

Happy Friends week.
