I've learned -that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned -that just because someone doesn't love me the way I want them to doesn't mean they don't love me with all they have.

I've learned -that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I've learned -that my background and circumstances may have influenced who I am, but I am responsible for who I become.

I've learned -that even when I think I have no more to give,when a friend cries out to me, I will find the strength to help.

I've learned -that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
