Advice to share with whoever cares for them (Istanbul)
I came across these pieces of advice at some point somewhere and I thought I'd share them here:
ONE . Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully .
TWO . Marry a man/woman you love to talk to . As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other .
THREE . Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want .
FOUR . When you say, ‘I love you,’ mean it .
FIVE . When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye .
SIX . Be engaged at least six months before you get married .
SEVEN . Believe in love at first sight .
EIGHT . Never laugh at anyone’s dreams . People who don’t have dreams don’t have much .
NINE . Love deeply and passionately . You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely .
TEN . . In disagreements, fight fairly . No name calling .
ELEVEN .Don’t judge people by their relatives .
TWELVE . Talk slowly but think quickly .
THIRTEEN! . . . When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’
FOURTEEN . Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk .
FIFTEEN . Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze .
SIXTEEN . . When you lose, don’t lose the lesson .
SEVENTEEN . Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions .
EIGHTEEN . Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship .
NINETEEN . When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it .
TWENTY… Smile when picking up the phone . The caller will hear it in your voice .
TWENTY- ONE . Spend some time alone .
