Quote of the Day – What I’ve Learned – Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney was famous for giving us his opinion every week. Often, he gave us a succinct way to wrap up our thoughts by giving us his “What I’ve learned.” I recently found a collection of them. Today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorites.

I’ve learned … that being kind is more important than being right.
I’ve learned … that everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
I’ve learned … that having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
I’ve learned … that I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in some other way.
I’ve learned … that it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
I’ve learned … that life is tough, but I’m tougher.
I’ve learned … that money doesn’t buy class.
I’ve learned … that no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
I’ve learned … that one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.
I’ve learned … that opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
I’ve learned … that simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.
I’ve learned … that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
I’ve learned … that the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.
I’ve learned … that the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.
I’ve learned … that we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for.
I’ve learned … that when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.
I’ve learned … that when you’re in love, it shows.
Andy Rooney
