    2.Learn some and think some and draw some and paint...( what is the difference between draw and paint?

    3.And then remember that book about Dick and Jand and the first word you learned, the biggest of all.( what is the underlying meaning of the biggest of all?)

    4.The Golden Rule,.... and the sane living.( what is the sane living?)

    Re: how to be...

    1. how to be/ how to behave
    2.draw = use pencil, crayons or the like....paint= use paint and brush
    3. We donŽt know what the word is , weŽd need more context..
    4. sane is the opposite of insane/crazy...so living a well-adjusted life

    Re: how to be...

    Years ago, many American school children first learned to read from books about Dick and Jane. The text was very simple: "See Dick run. Run, Dick, run. Jane has the ball."

    "Remember the Dick and Jane books and the first word you learned -- the biggest word of all -- is LOOK." Considering the very basic text in the books, "look" was a big word, and a point of pride to learn it for a kindergartner.

    The British equivalent is 'Janet and John'.
