Andy Rooney’s Life Wisdom

Recently one of our CAEF board members sent me the following which I thought fitting for the beginning of a new yeqr so I want to share it with you.

Andy Rooney has passed away, but used to be on CBS’s 60 Minutes TV show. He is quoted as having said the following.
I’ve learned….
• the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

• when you’re in love, it shows.
• just one person saying to me, ‘You’ve made my day!’ makes my day.
• having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
• being kind is more important than being right.

• you should never say no to a gift from a child.

• I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in any other way.
• no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
• some times all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.

• simple walks with my father on summer nights, when a child, did wonders for me as an adult.
• life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
• money doesn’t buy class.
• it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.

• under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

• to ignore the facts does not change the facts.

• when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.
• love, not time, heals all wounds.
• the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.
• everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.

• no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
• life is tough, but I’m tougher.

• opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
• when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.

• I wish I could have told my Mom that I love her one more time before she passed away.

• one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.

• a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

• when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, you’re hooked for life.

• every one wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.
• the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.
