Even though you believe or know you to be right, never talk loudly and angrily. Give you views calmly and quietly. If you views are not agreed to, change the conversation by saying, `we must agree to differ. Let us talk of something else.’
Jokes which make some people laugh will seem foolish to other people.
Never speak of yourself if it is possible. To talk of you without any reason is to show yourself shameless. Pride is a very strong feeling in men, so that we often see people trying top obtain other people’s good opinion without seeming to do so, and for no good reason. The only way of keeping away from this s never to speak of ourselves, we should take care not to say a single word by which people can think that we are asking for their good opinions. Whatever our character may be, they will be known and nobody will judge us from our own opinion of you.
Always look people in the face when you are speaking to them.
Never say evil things about other people or listen to them.
Never use unkind language about the whole class of people, such as teachers, soldiers, shop keepers, etc. it in unjust and unwise. Among all lasses there are good as well as bad ones. Judge people are from your own knowledge of them and not from their occupation or race.
To make fun of a person’s behavior is an amusement of little minds. It is the lowest sort of foolishness. We should neither practice it nor laugh at it. It hurts a person’s feelings.
