Granddaughter Jackie forwards these great rules for living:
What I learned in kindergarten....
All I really need to know about how to live and what to do
and how to be . . . I learned in kindergarten.
- Share everything.
- Play fair.
- Don't hit people.
- Put things back where you found them.
- Clean up your own mess.
- Don't take things that aren't yours.
- Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
- Wash your hands before you eat.
- Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
- Live a balanced life--- learn some and think some and
draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day.
- Take a nap every afternoon.
- When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic,
hold hands, and stick together.
- Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in
the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really
knows how or why, but we are all like that.
- Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little
seed in the Styrofoam cup--- they all die. So do we.
- And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first
word you learned--- the biggest word of all --- LOOK."
