About the Book

In going through life one learns many of life’s lessons. This book points out some of the lessons the author has learned. He also gives some of his personal thoughts and ideas. The author begins his life on a small-dirt farm in East Texas, plowing a mule from sunup to sunset: he then receives an inadequate education from a rural-all-Black school, where he was neglected and abused; after which, he goes to college in East Texas, where he was out of place; later to the military; back to graduate school in Houston; and then settles in a South Suburb of Chicago, where he experienced cultural shock. These sayings, personal thoughts, and ideas are derived from his seventy-three years of experience.
