    Charlie Hough says, "Listen to everyone. Learn from everyone.
    Nobody knows everything but everyone knows something."

    At her citizenship hearing in 1967, Immaculata Cuomo (mother of
    Mario Cuomo) was asked by the judge how many stars were on the US
    flag. She said she didn't know, but could she ask the judge a
    question? After he agreed, she asked him how many hands of
    bananas were on a stalk. He admitted he didn't know, so she
    proudly said, "Well, I do." Her citizenship was granted. Here was
    a judge who wisely realized that everyone has something to teach.

    "Live to learn and you will learn to live," says a Portuguese
    proverb. For life cannot be lived well in ignorance. In fact,
    those who live life to the fullest have a PhD in living! This is
    what a PhD in living means:

    P is for "poor in knowledge." Those who live best realize that
    they can never learn enough.

    H is for "hungry to learn." Those who hunger for knowledge will
    always find plenty to eat.

    D is for "desire to succeed." Those who desire to learn and
    improve, and those who persist in spite of obstacles, will live

    Realize you're poor in knowledge, become hungry to learn and
    desire to succeed. Everybody and every occasion can become your
    teacher, and this is the PhD that will open the door of success.
