The words to all the Rolling Stones songs - could join them 'word for word' at their latest concerts.  If I could afford the tickets!!

The love of books and reading. 

Do you teach someone the love of anything?  Surely you either love someone/thing, or you don't?

I've always loved reading, but that didn't come from my parents - neither of them were much interested in books.

I guess I appreciate the fact that my mother was an avid reader, she passed her books on to me and suggested things to read.  I may have done this all by myself but she did influence me.

That if I want something I should work hard for it, and it can be achieved, it won't just land in my lap.

AG, teaching little C manners, well trying to!

My mum was always telling me not to follow the crowd and to do my own thing.  It has made me very independent and confident to give anything a go regardless of what anyone else thinks.  I didn't appreciate the lesson until probably 8 years ago.  Now it is a guiding part of my life

i really wish they hadn't told me 'do something you enjoy'

i wish they had told me 'do something that will make you a ton of cash and do the things you enjoy in your spare time.
