on how to live
a happy and rewarding life:
Don't use time or words carelessly;
neither can be retrieved.
Be a self-starter.
Be tough-minded, but tenderhearted.
Choose your life's mate carefully; from this decision
nearly all your happiness or misery.
Learn to listen; opportunity sometimes knocks very softly.
Praise in public; criticize in private.
Wish not for things, but for wisdom and courage.
No moment will ever repeat.
Savor time with family and friends.
Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. . . .
No one will know
Get and stay in shape.
