Wisdom in e-mail

I got one of those chain e-mails today, but the message it contained was pretty cool. So if I post it here, then you don't have to e-mail it to everyone you know to avoid bad luck. You can just read and enjoy the wise thoughts. Thanks, Maria!

Lotus Totus
  • ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

  • TWO. Marry someone you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

  • THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

  • FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.

  • FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

  • SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

  • SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

  • EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

  • NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

  • TEN In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

  • ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

  • TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

  • THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

  • FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

  • FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

  • SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson

  • SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

  • EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

  • NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

  • TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

  • TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.
