"Remember, life is a marathon and not a sprint.
Train yourself to go the distance."

The homespun wisdom that young Paul Cummings received while he and his granddad talked beside an Arkansas fence post has enriched his life beyond measure. Now he shares with us a treasure-trove of nearly two hundred inspiring insights into human nature and bedrock American values, a precious memento from a time that seems to have receded from memory. Yet as you will soon discover, a grandfather's good sense and warm-hearted words never lose relevance--especially in today's fast-paced world.

Grandfather Cummings' thoughts are a family treasure. Now they can be your family treasure to pass down through the generations.
