Just a thread for us to remember some insights that our grandparents gave to us that helped shape us, that we associate with how it shaped us, and provided us with certain wisdom and knowledge that we take with us. I often think back about the things that my two grandparents shared with me, their attitudes, sense of humour, ideals and values. My grandfather always told me to pursue my education to the highest level I could, I only remembered it a little while ago and it looks like that constant repetition by him deeply embedded itself into my subconscious, as I did progress it as far as I could. He also showed me the art of doing things yourself, of being a proud and direct person. Never bet around the bush, said exactly what he felt but people loved him for it. My grandmother was quite different, being very reserved and quiet, but also really intelligent and sharp-witted. She gave me many life-skills and values that I take with me to this day.
