    1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
    2. Memorize your favorite poem
    3. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want
    4. When you say, "I love you", mean it.
    5. When you say, "I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.
    6. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
    7. Believe in love at first sight.
    8. Never laugh at anyone's dreams.
    9. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. 10. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
    11. Don't judge people by their relatives.
    12. Talk slow but think quick. Hasty responses shows your true character
    13. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"
    14. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
    15. Call your mom.
    16. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
    17. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
    18. Remember the three R's:*
    * Respect for self;*
    * Respect for others;*
    * Responsibility for all your actions.
    19. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
    20. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
    21. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
    22. Marry someone you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
    23. Spend some time alone.
    24. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
    25. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
    26. Read more books and watch less TV.
    27. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll get to enjoy it a second time.
    28. Trust in God but lock your car.
    29. A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil harmonious home.
    30. In disagreements with loved ones, deal with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.
    31. Read between the lines.
    32. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
    33. Be gentle with the earth...and yourself.
    34. Pray. There's immeasurable power in it.
    35. Never interrupt when you are being flattered.
    36. Mind your own business.
    37. Don't trust someone who doesn't close their eyes when you kiss them.
    38. Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
    39. If you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while you are living. That is wealth's greatest satisfaction.
    40. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.
    41. Learn the rules, then break some.
    42. Remember that the best relationship is one where your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.
    43. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
    44. Remember that your character is your destiny.
    45. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

      A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. The trick is, you still have to take that first step.

      In response to #43: lets see, what did I have to give up for my success at being really good at Salsa - TV (check) Drinking at bars (check), Sitting around on my back side(check) Yeah, that's about it.

    How I Grew Over an Inch in Height After the Age of Forty
    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!! I’ve always been a short person but I used to be even shorter.

    By Edie, The Salsa FREAK!! Like most people, I had a normal “Nine to Five” job. I was working as a contractor for the US Government.

I commuted an hour to/from work as well, again “sitting down and not moving” in my car. I wasn’t really...
