The Secrets of Life - in 6 words: Before middle age - Do not
fear! After middle age - Do not regret!
Enjoy Your Life While You Can Do not wait till you cannot even
walk just to be sorry and to regret! As long as it is physically
possible, visit places you wish to visit.
Get out of the stock market! When the share prices are up, your
blood pressure goes up too, you want to buy but you cannot get.
When the share prices are down, you panic and want to sell, but no
one wish to buy. You can't make all the money, why not let the young
ones have a chance!
When there is an opportunity: Get together with old classmates,
old colleagues & old friends. The gathering is not just about
eating, the concern is there is not much time left! Money
kept in the banks may not be really yours. When it is time to spend,
just spend. You should treat yourself well as you're getting old!
Whatever you feel like eating, just eat! It is most important to
There are two kinds of food: Things which are good for health -
eat often, eat more but that is not everything. 2. Things which are
not good for health - eat a little, eat once a while but do not abstain
from them totally.
Food that you do not feel like eating or do
not like, you still need to eat a little once a while, just to balance
your nutrition intake! Treat sickness with optimism. Whether you are
poor, rich, powerful or powerless, everyone will have to go through the
process of birth, aging, sickness and death, there is no exception,
Do not be afraid or worried when you are sick. Settle
all the outstanding issues before hand and when you are well, including
your funeral arrangements, You will be able to leave this world anytime,
without regret! Let the doctors handle your body, Let GOD / NATURE
handle your life, But be in charge of your own moods!
If worries can
cure your sickness, then go ahead and worry! If worries can prolong your
life, then go ahead and worry! If worries can exchange for happiness,
then go ahead and worry!
Our kids will have their own fortune.
Things concerning children and grandchildren, We can listen with ears,
We can see with eyes, Just do not open your mouths or make any comments!
The principles are : Do not say anything that are fruitless, Do not
do anything that is beyond your ability to achieve, If you are in a
reactive situation, make your judgment based on the circumstances, If

Three Things You Must Do Everyday! - The first thing: Laugh
- The second
thing: Smile - The third thing: Laugh loudly and to your heart's content.
A wonderful life will always find wonderful reasons The one who can
laugh last, will be the one with the sweetest laugh! Be determined
in doing an appropriate amount of exercises everyday , Have sufficient
sleep, Maintain a peaceful and cheerful state of mind.
Instead of scolding people with red faces and swelling blood
vessels on the necks, Why not just adopt more gracious approaches.

ocean and the sky with no boundary. There are always ups and downs in
life, Since you do not jump for joy when the water vapor rises, Why
should you feel sad when it rains!

those voices again!'
And; last, but not least!
December 24: Went into a fitting room in the clothing department, shut the door and waited awhile; then, yelled, very
loudly, 'There is no toilet paper in here!'
