25 Things I Learned From My Dad

Life is a mystery. Don't try to figure it out, just enjoy it.

Often times, the quietest person in a group is the most interesting one.

Turn off the lights when you leave a room.

If you watch ants in a colony, you'll have answers to how humans can live cooperatively and peacefully.

It's easier start a war than it is to end it.

Laughter cures almost anything.

Fancy houses and new cars don't make the man or the woman.

Be on time.

Practice moderation in all things.

It's possible for plaids and checks to look good together.

Don't buy on credit.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Tolerate differences in all people.

Reading history can help us avoid mistakes.

Life is a circle. Just as space is curved, so is time. There is no beginning or end.

Always get a name when dealing with someone over the phone.

Loveable people are easy to love; it's the unloveable ones who need our love.

Never trust a turn signal.

It takes twice as long to do something wrong.

Ping Pong is a competitive sport.

Never litter.

Traveling is the best education.

Get along with your neighbors.

The Golden Rule is the only one that you have to remember.

Leave the world better than you found it.
