Recently someone sent me sayings written by Andy Rooney, “a man who had the gift of saying so much with so few words.”  Below are some of the sayings that were included in the email.

I’ve learned ….
That just one person saying to me, ‘You’ve made my day!’ makes my day.
I’ve learned ….
That being kind is more important than being right.
I’ve learned ….
That I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in some other way.

That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
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.
