FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in
the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who

hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you
want to know?"

FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for

all your actions.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake,
take immediate steps to correct it.
