All I Ever Really Needed To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

Most of what I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate mountain, but there in the sandbox at nursery school.

These are the things I learned:

bpur.gif (807 bytes) Play fair.
bpur.gif (807 bytes) Don't hit people.
bpur.gif (807 bytes) Put things back where you found them.
