It's REALLY hard to pick my favorite life lesson, but I suppose it'd be to never give up that childhood playfulness.

My favorite life lesson is to own a pet. No matter how bad your day is, you forget it all when your pet cuddles with you as soon as you get home.

Jonnathan Baquero

It's incredibly hard to pick a favorite, but mine might be that adults are actually dinosaurs.

Imagination is the key to getting through life. That and the companionship of a good (preferably fuzzy) friend.

- Davy Jones

Jeff Hollon

Be unique!

Larry  Schultz

We should leave math to the machines and go outside and play.

Diego Pizarro

Consequentalist philosophy of ethics is ludicrous and self-refuting. As Calvin claims that the "end justify the means" and it's a "dog eats dog world", Hobbes simply pushes him off to a puddle of mud, pinpointing the paradox behind Calvin's hypocritical reasoning. With this, I've learned that ethics in life do not rely on pragmatic intuition. Instead, ethics are objective and metaphysical, independent from human thought. I read Calvin and Hobbes as a philosophy book, which could explain how much I began to appreciate it as I grew older... and how much I've learned.

Faline Rowland

I love Calvin and Hobbs. Remember, you're never too old to be a kid and have a a Tyger for a best friend.

Daniel Gillespie

Imaginary friends can help you through real difficulties.

Cookie Walbridge

Don Mathias

The power if Imagination is a very powerful thing indeed.
-Don Mathias

My favorite life lesson that Calvin and Hobbes presents is to never limit your child hood dreams. Even if they may seem silly, you should always follow the dreams that you may have- you never know where they could take you!

Bob Pownall

"It's a magical world - let's go exploring!"

Julie witek

Julie Witek

Sonya DeBerte

That growing up wasn't weird.

Crazy works.

Life is full of surprises, but never when you need one.

Jazmyn M.

My biggest life lesson from C&H was to never, ever, EVER put Crisco in your damn hair.
It doesn't work like in the comic. Instead of being like gel or pomade, it just kind of...gunks everything up. You end up with what look like bone straight, heavy, greasy dreds.
My mom flipped balls, and it took a full week to finally wash out.
Didn't need a deep conditioning treatment for a while, though...

Teresa Smith

An ordinary day is an adventure!

Live your life, do what you have to do, but never grow up.

-Justin Nash

austin oconnell milne

ileared not to care what people think of you

Steven Dalrymple

Let your imagination take you where it will. Even if you and your little red wagon go careening off a cliff.

Marvin jung

My best life lesson from Calvin & Hobbes that I STILL follow to this day is to never lose my imagination and creativity. I may not have a stuffed Tiger, but I always kept what he represented.....copilot, fellow soldier in battle, a littany of wonderful things kept me going and in the future when I have a child (I'm getting married next month) I'm going to share that creative enthusiasm with my future child.


Never surprise a sleeping tiger. Really, that's the most important lesson in life.

Never surprise a sleeping tiger. Really, that's the most important lesson in life.

Justin Bell

Go exploring!
-Justin Bel

Kodie Egenolf

My favorite life lesson from Calvin and Hobbes is that your life can always be a great adventure no matter if your in the snow, a sandbox, driving in a car or falling asleep to a children's story. It's that the small things in life like your first stuffed animal help make you the person you are today.

Justin Bell

Go Exploring!

Sometimes I think the surest sign intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is the fact that none of it has tried to contact us.

Always try to find the adventure in life.

"Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend."

Calvin and Hobbes taught me that youth isn't about age. It's a state of mind. It's the ability to see the simplest thing as the potential for something great, thrilling, scary, and fantastic.
