I wrote this down back in the ’90s, and I’m not sure where I got it.  I can’t find any other copy of it anywhere:

Some Very Wise Words of Wisdom:

“Here are a few daily rules, going the rounds of the press, that are intended to make the world more livable, with more of the “abundant life”:

1) Do not contradict people, even if you are sure you are right.

2) Do not be inquisitive about the affairs of even your most intimate friend.

3) Do not underrate anything because you do not possess it.

4) Do not believe all the evil you hear.

5) Do not repeat gossip, even if it does interest a crowd.

6) Do not jeer at anybody’s religious belief.

7) Learn to hide your aches and pains under a pleasant smile; few care whether you have earache, headache, or rheumatism.

8) Learn to attend to your own business–a very important point.

9) Do not try to be anything else but a gentleman or lady; and that means one who has consideration for the whole world, and all races.”

  5. Hello Shawn, wonderful words of wisdom, we do need to consider what is truly important and the value we place on life in all its form. We humans are spiritual beings sharing human experiences! Love is all that matters in Life; Divine loving compassion is who we are as spiritual beings.

  6. They are very wise words to adhere to Shawn, thank you for sharing these and reminding us the importance of every life, to share the love that is in our heart, not to sit in judgement, be respectful and show compassion to those in need.

  7. Shawn, these are wonderful thoughts to ponder upon. Wisdom is the sharing of wise experiences and knowledge, but a lot of it is common sense. The difference is how we apply this common sense – we all have the ability to keep going even when we face challenges in our lives – basically it comes down to your attitude – is it positive or negative.

    The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others.
