Some General Principles To Live By
by James Vaughan

1.Tell the truth. Honesty really is the best policy.
2.Perfect your ability to love. It's the most powerful force in the world.
3.Pay attention to two-year-olds and puppies. They know what's important.
4.Look at sunsets; smell the flowers; listen to the birds; touch the people you care about; taste life. Everything you need is there for you.
5.Take responsibility for meeting your own needs, but don't do it in ways that keep others from meeting theirs.
6.Forgive yourself and others. We're all doing the best we can to find our way.
7.Live by your own values. Others may think they know best for you, but you're the one who has to live with the consequences of your actions.
8.Listen to your body and take care of it. It's the best teacher you have now.
9.Laugh often and long. It really does help.
10.Hang out with people you like and admire. We tend to imitate those around us whether we want to or not.
11.Follow your dream. Life is exciting when you're pursuing your own goals—and you can do and have most anything you really want.
12.Learn from your failures and don't be afraid to fail often.
13.Life isn't fair, but it isn't unfair either. When things don't seem to be working for you, do something. Movement is the key to change and life itself.
14.Peace is possible and it begins with you and me.
15.One of the greatest paradoxes in life is that you get more when you give more.
16.Relationships are more important than things.
17.The greatest challenge you will ever have is to be yourself.
18.Be nice to prunes. You may be one someday.
19.Opportunity knocks and knocks and knocks…
