Robert Fulghum in his wildly-popular book, “All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten,?spelled out how things learned as a child will shape the philosophy of an adult. These life-changing kindergarten rules, principles, and advice include: “Share everything. Play fair. 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 someone. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life -- learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. . . . Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living. . . . Think what a better world it would be if we all -- the whole world -- had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if all governments had a basic policy to put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess. And it is still true, no matter how old you are -- it is best to hold hands and stick together.?
