A Guide To A Happy Life
by Lloyd Shearer
No one will ever get out of this world alive.
Resolve therefore to maintain a reasonable sense of values.
Take care or yourself.
Good health is everyone's major source of wealth.
Without it, happiness is almost impossible.
Resolve to be cheerful and helpful.
People will repay you in kind.
Avoid angry, abrasive persons.
They are generally vengeful.
They are generally humorless.
Resolve to listen more and to talk less.
No one ever learns anything by talking.
Be chary of giving advice.
Wise men don't need it and fools won't heed it.
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the wrong.
Sometime in life you will have been all of these.
Do not equate money with success.
There are many successful moneymakers
who are miserable failures as human beings.
What counts most about success is how a person achieves it.
