All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten
by Robert Fulghum

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 school mountain,
but there in the sand pile at Sunday school. 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.
                                      Warm cookies and cold 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                                                                                                                           everyday 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.
