Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. Memorize your favorite poem. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
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 dreams. Don't judge people by their relatives.
Talk slow but think quick. Call your mom. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?" Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions. Marry a person you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze. 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. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. Read the Bible from cover to cover. No three words have greater power than 'I Love You'
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.
