Chuck Burck runs an upbeat burger place that caters to people of all ages. The following is a compilation of some of the things he has learned from others of all ages:

"If someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it." (Age 39)

"Even when I have pains, I don't have to be one." (Age 82)

"Motel mattresses are better on the side away from the phone." (Age 50)

"Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you miss them terribly after they die." (Age 53)

"I can't hide broccoli in a glass of milk." (Age 7)

"I shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. I need to be able to throw something back." (Age 64)

"Brushing my child's hair is one of life's greatest pleasures." (Age 29)

"Wherever I go, the world's worst drivers follow me!" (Age 29)

"You can make someone's day by simply sending a little card." (Age 44)

"When I wave to people in the country, they stop what they're doing and wave back." (Age 9)

"You can tell a lot about a person by the way he handles three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights." (Age 52)

"Making a living is not the same thing as making a life." (Age 58)

"I like my teacher because she cries when we sing 'Silent Night.'" (Age 7)

"There are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it." (Age 41)

"You should reach out and touch someone. People love human touch — holding hands, warm hugs or just a pat on the back." (Age 85)

"I still have a lot to learn." (Age 92)

As you noticed, we can learn from people of all ages. As a matter of fact, if we ever want to teach others, we must make it a point to learn from others. Take that approach, and I'll see you at the top!
