Words from Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney died this weekend at the age of 92. He was known for the homespun advice he gave us on CBS from 1978 until 2011, but he also was an actor in almost 300 films,  spoke out forcefully against elder abuse and was an expert on the Civil War. He probably was best known to most Americans for always speaking his mind on his weekly segment on 60 Minutes, “A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney”. He sometimes got into trouble because of his thoughts, but his homespun  comments were right on the mark most of the time. Here are just a few of them:

“Being kind is more important than being right”

“To ignore the facts does not change the facts”

“Everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile”

“It’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular”

“When you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere”

“Under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved”

“No matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with”.

Whether you loved him or hated him, please share your feelings with us in the “Comments” section. Thanks!

    Wow. I love the quotes of his you posted. Mine is basically a music blog but I also just did a little piece on him. Did you get these comments from his CBS videos or from any of his books? They are very true!
