Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
I shall fear only God.
I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
I shall conquer untruth by truth.
And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
"People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds; it is something one creates." - Thomas Szasz
Rule 6: There is no such thing as overkill when the other guy started it.
I like this.
Think before acting.
Have good reasons for what you do.
Accept the consequences for your actions.
Learn from mistakes.
Ask questions, and hear the answers with an open mind.
Don't be constrained by foolish or artificial limitations (most are).
Always keep learning.
Do what you love: you will be better at it, contribute more, and be more fulfilled.
Follow your heart but use your brain, too.
It's okay to say "no" sometimes.
Recognize your faults and try to correct them, but don't define yourself by them either.
Sometimes it's okay to break the rules.
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
