    - God does not exist.
    - "What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god!" (His favorite Shakespeare quote.)
    - Only by learning new ideas and words can you experience them.
    - Bullies are cowards once you get them alone.

    - Luck usually is the result of trying again.
    - If you smoke half your head might fall off.
    - Watch your sugar intake; and don't waste sugar on drinks.
    - Boys don't marry boys.

    Actually, these are four things I have said many times to my kids.

    He was an atheist until his dying day (and beyond :)), though he did honor the Jewish holy days as a matter of tradition. My thinking on the subject is the same as his was. I was not taken aside and taught "atheism," but JudeoChristian supernaturalism was treated pretty much like any other myths, such as the Roman and Greek ones.

    Never look down when you're talking to someone.
    Some of the best advice is never said out loud.
    Get up!
    Cats are evil and worthless.

    1. Don't fill the bourbon bottle back up with water after sneaking a drink! 2. If I'm going to steal cigarettes take moms not his! 3. Tighten the oil filter on my 66 nova 3/4 turn NOT 3 to 4 turns. 4. NEVER EVER hit a girl.

    1) The value of life and the importance of faith (as a Vietnam vet, these were especially stressed by him).

    2) Respect others, but never back down and get walked on.

    3) Always get the whole story.

    4) GO PATS!
