10 Good Things

March 22, 2009

I came across this in an old journal.


There are ten good things for which no man has ever been sorry:-

For doing good to all;

For speaking evil of no one;

For hearing before judging;

For thinking before speaking;

For holding an angry tongue;

For being kind to the distressed;

For asking pardon for all wrongs;

For being patient toward everybody;

For stopping the ear of the tale bearer;

For dis-believing most of the evil reports.

    The journal reminds me of a moleskin diary. But it’s expensive.


    Yes, I’ve been really busy at work seriously. I hope you’re doing good!

    Yup, I remembered you telling me about it once. 😉

    Kyels, I’ve been terribly busy too hence I’m always exhausted.
