    criticism. Do not take anything to your heart. Forgive and forget. Move on.

    passes on you. Learn to smile & ignore. (Smile solves a lot of problems silence

    avoids a lot of problems).

    23. Do only the right things in life and never do wrong (less strain on mind / heart /

    conscience). More wrong you do, more tension. Control greed.
