Rules of living

over the course of 2 days i have shared a list over at FB. it is the Dalai Lama´s 18 rules of living. 

#1 take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
#2 When you loose dont loose the lesson.
#3 Follow the three R's: Respect for self. Respect for others. Responsibility for all your actions.
#4 Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
#5 Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
#6 Don´t let a little dispute injure great friendship.
#7 When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
#8 Spend some time alone every day.
#9 Open your arms to change, but dont let go of your values.
#10 Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
#11 Live a good honourable life. Then when you get older and think back you will be able to enjoy it a second time.
#12 A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
#13 In disagreements with loved ones deal only with the current situation. Dont bring up the past.
#14 Share your knowledge. Its a way to achieve immortality.
#15 Be gentle with the earth.
#16 Once a year go someplace you have never been before.
#17 Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. 
#18 Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

i love them all! we (me and my husband) need to be reminded of number 13, we are horrible at throwing old stuff at eachother when we argue.

is there one that you like more than the others?
