in word and deed. Keep a promise. Find the
time. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Listen.
Apologize if you were wrong. Try to understand.
Flout envy. Examine your demands on others.

Laugh a little. Laugh a little more. Deserve confidence. Take up
arms against malice. Decry complacency. Express your gratitude.
Go to church. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.

Speak it again.
Speak it still
once again.
