Thank you Mr. Brown.

I've come to realize how much I still need to learn and the fact that a 91 year old admitted he still had a lot to learn really said something.

this is a really awesome book! it has the cutest sayings about life and the ideal book to read when you're having a bad day or just need a lift. most of the sayings are true and from people of all ages, which is why it caught my attention. i had originally got this book browsing in a library on my college's campus and checked it out, not knowing what to expect. it has sayings in it like "if you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always got" by a 51 year old; and that "even though its hard to admit, i'm secretly glad when my parents are strict with me" by a 15 year old, and that "a mule dressed in a tuxedo is still a mule" by a 70 year old and that "being a success at the office is not worth it if it means being a failure at home" by a 51 year old. after reading these passages, i'm positive that the average reader can look through the passages and find a lot that can and does relate to his or her life.

Format: Paperback
There is the element of the cutesy- wootsy stuff that tries to entertain and falls flat, but by and large this collection centering on what people have learned in their lives(Ages five to ninety - five) contains a lot of solid wisdom .It also contains a vast number of sayings which give us pause, make us think, demand that we qualify and contradict.

A small work based on a good idea. (I will give a few of the sayings that may sound awkward as I am translating them back into English from the Hebrew edition of the book.)

" I learned that there is no subject you cannot teach yourself through reading"

"I learned that you can learn a lot about a man from the degree of happiness his wife has, and the degree of respect his children have for him.

I learned that to love and to be loved is the greatest delight in life.

I learned that generous people rarely suffer from emotional problems.

I learned that if you made an appointment for a doctor at eight in the morning you will still have to wait an hour.

I learned that what my grandmother said is correct: As one gets older time seems to go by much more fast.

I'm not going to lie, I thought I was a somewhat wise person, which is foolish to assume. I am 13 Years old, but I understand honor, respect, courage, among other things. I thought wisdom could only come from old books and your parents. But this book gave me a new perspective on life. The faults and examples of others has reflected upon me greatly. I've come to realize how much I still need to learn and the fact that a 91 year old admitted he still had a lot to learn really said something. I encourage you to read this book and think about the lessons that will help you for the rest of your life

I found the complete 3 volumes in one book, on sale. Bought a case of them and gave them out instead of birthday cards, wedding cards, sympathy cards, etc. Always got a great response from it. It's a great pick-me-up just to look randomly through the book when you are feeling down.

A must have along with Life's Complete Little Instruction Book, by H. Jackson Brown Jr. I bought a case of those also. I actually bought the instruction book first, and then found the Live Learn and Pass It On later.

Format: Paperback
I have always been a great fan of quote and advice books of all kinds. This small 160 page volume approaches the subject of learning and lessons in a unique and refreshing way. This volume contains bits of wisdom from people of all ages. The selections include short quotes from people from 5 years old to 95 years old. The lessons learned are sometimes amusing, funny, and even thought provoking. There are thousands of years of experience recorded in this book and even though many of the quotes are just common sense; nevertheless, there is a lot to be learned from the experiences of different people at different times in their lives. It demonstrates that learning is a lifetime process and we are never too old to learn something new.

Some of the amusing quotes are as follows: "I've learned that you can't hide a piece of broccoli in your glass of milk." (Age 7). "I've learned that every great achievement was once considered impossible." (Age 47). "I've learned that there's no substitute for good manners." (age 37). I've learned that a good reputation is a person's greatest asset." (age 74). I've learned that people are about as happy as they decide to be." (Age 79). "I've learned that days are long, but life is short." (Age 88). "I've learned that there are still some things I haven't made up my mind about yet." (Age 91).

In conclusion, this book will be of interest to anyone who has a passion for quotes and advice from all kinds of people. If you are a lifetime student you will enjoy this book.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Season of the Warrior: A poetic tribute to warriors)
