My son, do not forget my teaching.
Here are some more lessons I learned from my dad.
I learned that . . .
Where I am is less important than the direction I am moving.
Strong minds rise above misfortune.
Things turn out best when I make the best of the way things turn out.
I can’t change everything I face, but I can’t change anything until I face it.
Self-pity requires no self-control, no courage, no character.
Negative thoughts never produce positive results.
I make choices, and those choices have results, and I must live with those results.
I am young only once, but I can be immature indefinitely.
The contented person is never poor, and the discontented never rich.
Happiness comes not from the goods I have, but from the good I do.
It doesn’t require brains to complain.
