Rules for life

I've been thinking about the rules for living that I have learned in my years. I've learned them from lots of different sources, and at lots of different points in my life.

  1. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
  2. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
  3. Take only pictures, leave only footprints.
  4. Inexpensive is good. Cheap is not.
  5. Love is always the answer.
  6. A place for everything, and everything in its place.
  7. It may be the easy way, but its not the cowboy way.
  8. Its not all about you.
  9. Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
  10. You may not be able to control what happens to you. You can control how you respond to what happens to you, though.
Ten rules were enough for the ancient Israelites. Ten rules are good enough for me.

What rules do you follow in your life?
