Here’s my Credo…

Here’s my Credo: All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten…. These are the things I learned:

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 • Flush • Warm cookies and 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 some • Take a nap every afternoon • When you go out into 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 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 • Everything you need to know is in there somewhere.

Hi everyone! Here is a (no so little) little quote to start or end your day. I know some of it may seem childish. But as you grow older you will look back and realize that you have taken most of these for granted and forget as “life” gets in the way. I started reading my quote book that was given to me when I graduated high school: Words That Shine Like Stars: How to have the life you’ve always wanted…Advice from celebrities and wonderful others Edited by Douglas Pagels. I love reading inspirational quotes, motivational quotes, or any quote whenever I need inspiration or am having a bad day or I just want to read something interesting. This is a wonderful book because it categorizes and separates the quotes in a journey-through-life way.

Sorry for so much writing. But if you are interested I think I might post a quote every Monday to brighten up this dull day.

Have a great day or good night,

~ DD
