Dad's Words of Wisdom

by Tim Read


Book Details

This manuscript contains ‘everything your mother ever told you’. It is only when we get older we realize that school put us on the long path of learning. The fact is that we never stop learning. We learn something new each day. Now that I retired I frequently say to myself - If only I were a little bit younger and knew what I know now! Advise is cheap and we all receive a generous amount, most of it unsolicited! Like a lot of other folk I tend to think that I knew it all anyway. It seems we have to suffer defeat before we realize that we have a lot to learn. How I remember those immortal words of my mother - “TOLD YOU SO” Any fool can be a father. It takes someone special to be a Dad (P. Whitmore snr)


Book Excerpt

Memory Lane is a one way street. You cannot change the past but you will always learn from your mistakes. This is how we do most of our learning - the hard way!
