My Life Rules

Every so often a pithy one-line rule for life pops into my head, and I like to keep track of them. Can you help me test them out?

(If one seriously doesn’t work, I’d like to know. If the vast majority of them do, can I interest you in some fortune cookie stock?)


Don’t show off.

Don’t reward a showoff.

Choose to be friends.

It’s not a contest.

Always be more loving than you feel.

The smallest size is enough food.

Beware of fads.

Be a person, not a brand.

He/She/It/Whoever is not the enemy.

Keep in touch.
