1. Don't sweat the small stuff, and remember, most stuff is small.
2. The most boring word in any language is "I".

4. Life is full of surprises. Just say "never" and you'll see.
5. People are more important than things.
6. Persistence will get you almost anything eventually.
7. Nobody can make you happy. Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

22. Mothers always know best, but sometimes fathers know, too.
23. If you seek happiness for yourself it will always elude you. If you seek it for others it will follow after you wherever you go.
24. Forgive yourself, your friends and your enemies. You're all only human.
