What are the most important lessons
you've learned in your long life?
1. They live happiest who have practiced forgiveness.
2. A sense of humor results from perspective. The wider the perspective, the more humor you will perceive.
3. Dogmas kill both intelligence and perception.
4. I don't know what is important art or literature, but I know I prefer science fiction and surrealism to mainstream books, Orson Welles to Elia Kazan, bawdy jokes to ugly news bulletins, and Gene Kelly musicals to Death of a Salesman.
5. The Dalai Lama seems the only religious leader around who isn't at least half crazy.
6. Certitude belongs exclusively to those who look up the answer in only one encyclopedia.
