Ron Swanson has to be one of the wisest, toughest, most experienced and manliest characters of all time. He holds true to his code of old fashioned values and timeless ways of living. He enjoys a good steak and wouldn't be against consuming large amounts of various types of meat. Throughout Parks and Recreation's hilarious series, this man has been a rock. He never compromises his beliefs, but is willing to be nudged a little from time to time in favor of his friends' wishes. He has been there through the show to teach his friends valuable lessons and also to be the one they come to for guidance when they make mistakes. Here are 10 things we have learned from Ron Swanson.

1. The Swanson Pyramid of Greatness...

2. "Don't half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing."

3. "When you have a fish on the line, you don't just drag it behind the boat. You either reel 'em in, or you cut 'em loose."

4. There's Only One Thing Worse Than a Liar...

5. "Any dog under 50 pounds is a cat and cats are pointless."

6. Birthdays Are Secretly a Scam...

7. Always Be Prepared...

8. "Be a Man."

9. "Nature is amazing."

10. "People who buys things are suckers."

That should about do it. What do you think of my list? Have other ideas? Write your own list and share it in the comments below. Until then, take care.
