Experience Is the Best Teacher.

Here are a few truths that are timeless in my opinion. It does not matter what century, year, or day it is; these truths remain relevant regardless.


*1. You will be judged by the company you keep.

*2. Respect begets respect.

*3. Never start a fight because he who angers you, conquers you.

*4. Learn to forgive & you will feel better when you do.

*5. Never cuss at children.

*6. Respect all living things.

*7. Every cliché you hear from your parents, especially when they were / are upset, will be repeated by you to your own kids!

Please add your own timeless truths!

Excellent! Thanks for writing them for us. We need to hear them again and again over the years.

Thank you for a great post. The basics of living life!

fantastic especially dont cuss children. ive seen that alot and i hate this.

Fantastic! Respect is right but it has to be mutual respect. There's not enough in the world today.

oh my, i so agree. I teach these things to my children but have never sat down and written them out like this. We all really need to get back to the basics to get our lives and communities back on track. life truly is individual responsibility.<br />
