All I need to know I learned in Kindergarten

Heute bin ich über einen Text gestolpert, der mich in seiner kindlichen Schlichtheit sehr angerührt hat Und den ich deshalb mit euch teilen möchte. Es ist ein kleiner Auszug aus dem Büchlein All I really need to know  I learned in kindergarten von Robert Fulghum: 


All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the sandpile at Sunday School. These are the things I learned: 


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 somebody. 

Wash your hands before you eat.


Warm Cookies and Cold milk are good for you.

Take a nap every afternoon.

When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.

Be aware of wonder.


Und viel mehr braucht es glaube ich wirklich nicht, um friedlich und fröhlich miteinander zu leben...
