I learned that tigers are great, and that Spaceman Spiff is the most badass adventurer ever

Gavin Riley

When I was growing up, I was a pretty awkward kid. I didn't have a lot of friends, and I was usually either by myself or with my parents. However, I had a very active imagination. Every day was an adventure to some far away land, and this attitude somehow made me feel a little less lonely. Calvin and Hobbes taught me that even if you're an oddball, even if you don't fit in, you can still live a full and creative life!

Wael Esmair

I learned to value and appreciate irony, vindication, and the paradoxical nature of the human being. To always question arguments from authority, to consider others, and to remember the kindled spirit of childhood. Most importantly, I learned to cherish friendship, the finitude of life, and a healthy dose of sarcasm.

Misbah Ahmad

One thing Calvin and Hobbes taught me was to keep that imagination rolling no matter how many times you're called crazy, be inventive and creative, having a good vocabulary can help you out of situations and lastly, life's more fun outdoors so don't stay inside on beautiful days.

Jennifer Calvache

What I learned from Calvin and Hobbes is that the world around you is your playground and everyday is an adventure.

I learned that you can never have enough s snowmen minions blocking the driveway.

Ian Rice

At a young age, I learned a lot about the power of creativity and individuality and how it can be difficult to maintain your individual voice as you grow up due to the pressures of society to conform. I think it helped me not worry so much about what other people thought about what I was doing and really let me be the person I wanted to be.

Elena Conejero

I learned to never lose the child in me!

Joel Sams

Calvin and Hobbes taught me that a great, vivid, varied imagination is a gateway to great adventures and wonders; that no matter where you are or what you have your perspective on the situation is the most important thing. Life shouldn't always be about following the rules created by the "grown-ups", but by thinking outside the box, experimenting with new ideas and in the end finding yourself in the middle of a game of Calvinball where the score is 6 to Oogy and there's a ghost-runner on 21st, but the opposite clause has just been enforced on your safe-zone and now you have to find a way to nab a wicket.

Nathan Locklear

I learned that in our imaginations we have no boundaries!

Greg Tulonen

I learned from Calvin's dad how to make up answers to questions my children ask, like how the world was in black & white until the '30s, or how they know the load limit on bridges by driving bigger and bigger trucks over the bridge until it breaks, then weighing the last truck and rebuilding the bridge.

Carrie Daggett

I learned that a kid can spend hours playing and having adventures with only a stuffed tiger and an imagination.

Peter Hendy

I learned that...hang on, this is a trick question, right?

Paul McNeely

I learned that it's a magical world.

Chris Pratl

I learned that as seemingly endless as childhood is, it's physically over before you know it. To hold on to childhood pleasures and gifts and carry these treasures over into adulthood keeps me sane and connected to an innocent period. C&H helps remind me daily that not everything has to end or "pass on" into that good night; we can have and keep all parts of our sum at any point in life. Nothing is ever trivial or dated. These little points keep me happy in some darker periods. I'm grateful for that.

M.L. Allen

I learned that there are some days that even lucky rocket ship underpants don't help but if you have a friend like Hobbes it will be just fine-----just don't touch his smock.

How to calculate the ultimate load on a bridge! Well, that's from Calvin's dad...

And that there's a suit that can prepare you for absolutely anything, by golly!
