    I just want to add some more which I have recieved in the mail from one of my friends.

    Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

    Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

    Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

    When you say, "I love you," mean it.

    When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

    Believe in love at first sight.

    Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

    Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

    In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

    Don't judge people by their relatives.

    Talk slowly but think quickly.

    When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

    Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

    Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

    When you lose, don't lose the lesson

    Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

    Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

    When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

    Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

    Spend some time alone.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
