Revisiting: All I Ever Needed to Know …

All I ever needed to know, I learned in Kindergarten, from my mum, from God…and from Dr. Seuss.(Dr. Seuss quotes are in blue)

If  leaders of countries  and the  heads of corporations practiced what they learned as small children, the world would be happier, healthier and more peaceful. Perhaps people in power should listen as Dr. Seuss and I talk to my children.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
Share and others will share with you.

More toys won’t make you happier.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Always say please and thank-you.

When you are grateful and thankful for  even the smallest things, you will be happy.


Don’t take offense quickly or every insult  and slight personally; sometimes other people simply are having a bad day and take it out on you.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

You can.create something beautiful today out of nothing when you are creative.

Pick up after yourself., don’t leave a mess.

Always do your best.

Don’t give up but finish what you started.
Think left and think right and think low and think high.Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

Always take the smaller portion when you are offered a treat.

Admit when you are wrong.
You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Ask questions if you don’t understand.

Don’t brag.

Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Today you are you!That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.

Say your prayers every night to reconnect to life, light and joy.

Remember that friends might come and go but family will always be there for each other.
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened

Try something new a few times before you decide you don’t like it.

Don’t pick fights or act like a bully just because you are bigger.
Maybe Christmas … doesn’t come from a store.
Learn something new today.

Be true to yourself. Don’t try to be someone you are not.
A person’s a person, no matter how small

Always give others the benefit of the doubt.
Wash your hands before you eat and brush your teeth afterwards.
Being crazy isn’t enough.
Mean what you say and say what you mean

You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act.
Go play and have fun.

Forgive other people because you make mistakes too.
From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.

When we try to control people we steal their identity so quit being so bossy.

Cover your mouth when you cough, and don’t spread germs.
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.

Tell the truth.

One lie will lead to another

Put yourself in the other person’s shoes
Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

Have a bath every night

Laugh lots.

“I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too. Games you can’t win ’cause you’ll play against you.” 

Get enough rest so you won’t be cranky.

Don’t be afraid to try something new.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

Eat healthy snacks.64af88250f4270ab14e015d8b65ee079

Live in the present moment
The more that you read, the more things you will know.
 The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Take off your dung-coloured glasses and look at the world clearly.

Look for people’s good qualities and not pointing out their faults.
