What people say behind your back is your standing in the community.
The only way to amuse some people is to slip and fall on an icy pavement.
Don't abuse your friends and expect them to consider it criticism.
Instead of loving your enemies, treat your friends a little better.
When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
You may easily play a joke on a man who likes to argue--agree with him.
