I got these in an e-mail the other day. I found some inspirational, especially the ones regarding love, so decided to re-post a selected few here on Bandit Talks. You can't just breeze through them. You've got to read each one, take a good, long hard look.
Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
When you say, "I love you," mean it.
When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
Believe in love at first sight.
Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
Don't judge people by their relatives.
Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
Remember the three R's: R espect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
Spend some time alone.
