<<   The 10 commandments on How  To Get Along With People
    1.      Keep skid chains on your tongue.  Say less than you think.
          Cultivate a soothing voice.  How you say it often means more
          than what you say.
  2.      Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully, no matter
          what the cost.
  3.      Never lose an opportunity to say a kind word to or about
          somebody.  Praise work well done, regardless of who did it.
    4.      Be interested in others, their  pursuits, their homes and
          their families.  Let everyone you meet, however humble,
          feel you regard them as important.  Fight the urge to tell
          them that your situation was worse  or better...give them the
          full attention.
    5.      Be cheerful.  Keep the corners of your mouth turned up.
          Hide your worries and disappointments under a smile.
    6.      Keep an open mind on all  debatable questions.  Discuss, but
          don't argue.  It is a mark of a  superior mind to disagree and
          remain friendly.
    7.      Let your virtues speak for themselves  and refuse to discuss
          the shortcomings of others.   Discourage gossip by changing
          the subject.
    8.      Have respect for the feelings of  others.  Wit and humor at the
          expense of a friend is never worth it.
    9.      Pay no attention to destructive remarks and personal attacks
          on you.  Live so that no one will  believe them.  Remember, a
          common cause of backbiting is  dissatisfaction with oneself.
    10.     Don't be concerned about your  "just due."  Do a good turn for
          the sake of being helpful.
