"The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them." ...
- Maya Angelou
The one I fall back on most often: "Never make a promise you can't keep."
I will try, I will work on it, I will hope, I'll even pray if you want (and I'm agnostic), but I will not promise what I can't deliver. I can't promise it will get better. I think it will, I hope it will, and I will stand by you to the end, but I can't promise if it's out of my control.
"In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people angry and has widely been considered as a bad move." -Douglas Adams
1. Treat others as you want to be treated.
2. The appearance of wrong doing is sometimes more damaging than the wrong doing itself
3 If you would be ashamed if Jesus or Daddy walked in on you doing something DON"TDO IT.
4.Birds of a feather flock together.
Don't sweat the small stuff. I teach 8th graders, and I choose my battles. If no one is bleeding or near death in my class, I tend to ignore it. However, if someone is name calling-bullying-I handle it right away. I also use this philosophy when waiting in line, if someone cuts me off when driving, I think to myself that it really does not matter in the long run. I've had times in the check out line when my check won't go through-too many lines on the check design, and just take a deep breath and say to myself-"this is not a really big deal." Sometimes it works, and sometimes I grab a drink when I get home.
From my grandfather, who spent his life working blue collar jobs after WWII and immigrating to America ended his education at a well known European university: "Don't ever think the other guy, the one behind the counter or running a machine, is dumb."
From one of my 4H advisors in high school: "The more you sweat in practice, the less you bleed in battle."
