All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten


Share everything.

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.

Flush.

Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.

Live a balanced life -
learn some and drink some and draw some and paint
some 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.
Remember the little seed in the stryrofoam cup --
The roots go down and the plant goes up
and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.

Goldfish and hamster and white mice
and even the little seed in the styrofoam cup --
they all die. So do we.

And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books
and the first word you learned -
the biggest word of all - "LOOK."

Robert Fulghum
