GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:

1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats.
2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch
the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap.


GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing Jell-O to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.

GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while
you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a
rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody
bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, ! but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

That is so true. I work in an old age home and once I came into a woman's room and saw her on the floor. She had fallen and decided to sort out her old magazines while she waited for someone to help her.

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.

The progressive of growing wisdom never to be technically defined in terms of time, location and age-wise. Some people at the age of 40 but unable to see the great return of helping the poor and needy.

I will explain in detail: Imagine A and B are standing on top of each block respectively. A's block is higher than B's block. So when A tells B how beautiful the outside world is, B knows about it and couldn't see it; on the other hand, B tells A that there's some dirt on A's block at the level of B's eye level but A couldn't see it.

This is the scenario fo our world. The world is made of many differences and thus we should respect it; accept different things wouls surely make us growing up eventhough the things we accept do not mean that we agrre on them.

Got my words?
