It's a small world. So you gotta use your elbows a lot. No one is listening until you make a mistake. Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else. Never test the depth of the water with both feet. It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others. It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments. If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything. If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again; it was probably worth it. You can't strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. Who gossips to you will gossip of you. When someone says, "Do you want my opinion?" - it's always a negative one. The word listen contains the same letters as the word silent.

Check 3 friends, if they are OK, you're it.
