Shrikant has a nice post to think and live life by. A few of the nuggets:
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. Dont 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, Im 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 anyones dream. People who dont have dreams dont have much.
