    Good Advice for Life

    I got this in an email today and I thought it was good advice for life. What you you add to the list?

    ONE . Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully ..
    TWO . Marry a man/woman you love to talk to . As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other ..
    THREE . Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want .
    FOUR . Pray every day .
    FIVE . When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye .
    SIX . Be engaged at least six months before you get married ..
    SEVEN . Believe in love at first sight .
    EIGHT . Never laugh at anyone's dreams . People who don't have dreams don't have much .
    NINE . Love deeply and passionately . You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
    TEN . In disagreements, fight fairly . No name calling .
    ELEVEN . Don't judge people by their relatives ..
    TWELVE . Talk slowly but think quickly ..
    THIRTEEN . When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'
    FOURTEEN . Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk .
    FIFTEEN . Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze .
    SIXTEEN . . When you lose, don't lose the lesson .
    SEVENTEEN . Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions .
    EIGHTEEN . Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship .
    NINETEEN . When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it .
    TWENTY . . Smile when picking up the phone . The caller will hear it in your voice .
    TWENTY- ONE . Spend some time alone .
    Twenty - two . When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.
    TWENTY-THREE . Give sincere compliments every day!

    Only disasters happen fast!
