Instructions for life

Philosophy

I stumbled upon this bit of sound advice that was published here: "Instructions for life"  
  • Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values
  • Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer
  • Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time
  • Spend some time alone every day
  • When you realise you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it
  • Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship
  • Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly
  • Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck
  • Follow the three Rs: Respect for self, Respect for others and Responsibility for all your actions
  • When you lose, don't lose the lesson
  • Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk
  • Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
  • A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
  • In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.
  • Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
  • Be gentle with the earth.
  • Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
  • Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
  • Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
