Dalai Lama 19 lessons on How to Live
Got this from a friend, who said it came from the Dalai Lama. Worth sharing I think. [not sure why the letter eight is being turned into a face with glasses on. Something weird about EZBoard I assume]

Nineteen Instructions for Life:

1) Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

2) When you lose, do not lose the lesson.

3) Follow the three Rís:
a) repsect for self
b) respect for others
c) responsibility for all your actions

4) Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

5) Learn the rules you know how to break them properly.

6) Donít let a little dispute injure a great relationship.

7) When you realize youíve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

8) Spend some time alone every day.

9) Open arms to change, but donít let go of your values.

10) Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

11) Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, youíll be able to enjoy it a second time.

12) A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

13) In disagrements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Donít bring up the past.

14) Share your knowledge. Itís a way to achieve immortality.

15) Be gentle with the earth.

16) Once a year, go someplace youíve never been before.

17) Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

18) Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

19) Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
