21 Praises of Wisdom to Pass On…  | January 25, 2022

1.   Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

2.   Marry a man/woman you love to talk to.  As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

3.   Don’t believe all you hear.

4.   When you say, “I love you,” mean  it.

5.   When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the  eye.

6.   Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

7.   Believe in love at first sight.

8.   Never make fun of anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

9.   Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but, it’s the only way to live life completely.

10.  In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

11.  Don’t judge people by their relatives.

12. Talk slowly but think quickly.

13. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

14. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

15. Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

16. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

17.  Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

18.  Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

19. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

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

21. Remember, laughter is the best medicine.

  1. You forgot the 4th R, which really is or ”should be” the 1st that was left out which is,,, Review everything 1st with God before doing anything for yourself or for anyone else. If you think that does not matter, & do whatever, then is when everything goes wrong. It’s called LUCK when it turns out okay without God.
