Learn to like the songs of birds, the companionship of dogs. {a brother's friendship}
Learn to like gardening, puttering around the house, and fixing things. {late spring blooms}

Learn to like the sunrise and sunset, the beating of rain on the roof and windows, and the gentle fall of snow on a winter day. {the harmony of nature and home}
Learn to keep your wants simple, and refuse to be controlled by the likes and dislikes of others. {like a child}
