The Last Lecture: Chapter 37 Summary & Analysis

Randy wants his daughter Chloe to know that, pound for pound, his colleague once told him the best dating advice he’d ever heard. “When it comes to men who are romantically interested in you, it’s really simple. Just ignore everything they say and only pay attention to what they do.” Randy says Chloe should listen to his advice, and that it could come in handy for his boys Dylan and Logan, too.
Again, this advice essentially boils down to always discerning a person’s character from their behavior rather than believing what’s on the surface (their words).
