Never trust someone who says “Just trust me.”
Never use a hard bristle toothbrush.
Never worry about what anyone thinks of you except for God and your Mama. If you’re an orphaned atheist, then you’re home free.
Never turn your back on a friend or family member, no matter how annoying they get.
Never start eating your popcorn until the first preview starts.
Never lie. It’s usually a bad idea and you’re probably not very good at it anyway.
Never be afraid to try something new, provided that it doesn’t violate any laws of a civil society, basic decency, or physics.
Never be afraid of failure. Abraham Lincoln blah blah blah…
Never take a sunset, rainy day, or kiss for granted.
Never be afraid to laugh at your own jokes.
Never point at someone unless you’re telling them how great they are.
Never forget that no matter how cool, funny, smart, or good looking you are, some people are going to think you stink worse than last year’s cole slaw. They’re not worth your time.
Never cut off your integrity, it doesn’t grow back.
Never be mean.
Never ignore that still, small voice in the back of your head, especially when it says “Run.”
Never fail to tell someone you love them. It might be your last chance.
Never interrupt other people.
And, most importantly…
Never give up.
