Ten Rules for the Good Life

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
Never spend your money before you have it.
Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap; it will never be dear to you.
Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
Never repent of having eaten too little.
Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
Don't let the evils which have never happened cost you pain.
Always take things by their smooth handle.
When angry, count to ten before you speak; if very angry, count to one hundred.

Boy that last one is sure true - one of my boys has a temper and he recently told another lad off. After a week or so he wondered why the other kid doesn't stop by anymore so we talked about it.
I reminded him that whatever relief or pleasure or macho he gained from his outburst can never equal the loss. First off, he scared the kid so he lost a friend and any help or advice he might EVER have to offer. If he opens a business, the kid won't buy his stuff. And if he scared him enough to remember, there'll come a day when our offspring might lose a job, raise or opportunity because "his dad's (uncle, whatever) a hothead" - nobody will take a chance. So his price just went up forever. Sad but that's the way animals deal with it. :)

The original folks that set this country up for us were called dumb farmers by the educated big city elites..But if you read their writeing you can see education has not progressed very much at all in the 250 years that passed.
