           If I’ve Leaned Anything
If I’ve learned anything in my eighty one year it would be the following:
  1. Kindness works better than intimidation everytime.
  2. Love is more rewarding than hatred will ever be.
  3. Learn to trust your own reasoning for others usually have an agenda. 
  4. Tomorrow is promised to no one.
  5. Logic works better than speculation.
  6. Happiness like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
  7. To love and be loved is one of life’s greatest gifts.
  8. Life ends with death only when we are totally forgotten.
  9. A man is only as good as his word.
  10. Hard work never hurt anyone.
  11. People are like fingerprints, there are no two exactly alike.
  12. Time is a thief, it will steal your life away.
  13. The most valuable asset a man can have is his integrity.
  14. Trust is earned not given.
  15. Poetry is the window to the soul.
16. Nothing is forever!
17.  Freedom is not free… ask any veteran!
