Lessons from Old Yeller

(Losing Old Yeller - Papa's words) ..."It's not a thing you can forget.  I don't guess it's a thing you ought to forget.  What I mean is, things like that happen.  They may seem mighty cruel and unfair, but that's how life is a part of the time."

"But that isn't the only way life is.  A part of the time, it's mighty good.  And a man can't afford to waste all the good parts, worrying about the bad parts.  That makes it all bad....You understand?"  Fred Gipson Share
