1) Never judge a book by its cover. In other words, don’t judge people by their looks.
2) Keep confidences told you by other people. Don’t tell stories which are to be kept “only for your ears”.
3) Do not borrow money or valuables from friends. Banks are the place to go if borrowing is necessary.
4) You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Compliment others when they deserve if. They’ll thrive.
5) Avoid solving personal problems for others. If you do, they may backfire.
6) Be a listener. Some people need you simply to listen to them.
7) Keep your physical ills between you and your doctor.
8 ) Keep your political ideas between you and the ballot box.
9) Money can be the roof of all evil but it doesn’t have to be that. Become investor and consumer oriented.
10) Although one has lived a long time, that person must take steps not to become a bore. Criticism of the younger folks gets one nowhere!
