Never appear on television 

Never have a photo on your public social media

Never be a director of a company or a trustee of any form

Never own real property except for your own occupation

Never handle money for others

Your work should be known, but you should not be.

Always be a good leaver.

Make no enemies and leave no traces.

If you can let everyone else show their hand, and speak last - do so.

GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

never wear brown in town, never rely on the RAF and never start a land war in Asia.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste,

And remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Avoid quiet and passive persons, unless you are in need of sleep.

Rotate your tires.

Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself,

And heed well their advice, even though they be turkeys.

Know what to kiss, and when.

Consider that two wrongs never make a right, but that three do.

Wherever possible, put people on hold.

Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment,

And despite the changing fortunes of time,

There is always a big future in computer maintenance.

Remember The Pueblo.

Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle, and mutilate.

Know yourself.

If you need help, call the FBI.

Exercise caution in your daily affairs,

Especially with those persons closest to you - that lemon on your left, for instance.

Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls would scarcely get your feet wet.

Fall not in love therefore. It will stick to your face.

Gracefully surrender the things of youth: birds, clean air, tuna, Taiwan.

And let not the sands of time get in your lunch.

Hire people with hooks.

For a good time, call 606-4311. Ask for Ken.

Take heart in the bedeepening gloom that your dog is finally getting enough cheese.

And reflect that whatever fortune may be your lot, it could only be worse in Milwaukee.

You are a fluke of the universe.

You have no right to be here.

And whether you can hear it or not,

The universe is laughing behind your back.

Therefore, make peace with your god,

Whatever you perceive him to be - hairy thunderer, or cosmic muffin.

With all its hopes, dreams, promises, and urban renewal,

The world continues to deteriorate.

Give up!

What about being a trustee of those of your family trusts that most directly concern you - surely that is a good idea?

Don't back off going into Mansfield, never shift up until the rev limiter kicks in, change the oil every season

'Don't back off going into Mansfield'


Did you back off previously? Intrigued as to the comment.

Balls, that should be Coppice. If you go flat through Mansfield you'd wake up in Louth General.

Coppice: I still comfort brake going under the bridge. Ideally, I should be flat in 5th on a 600 on the entry. Let the speed scrub off as you go left and up the hill, down one and into Charlies I, snick another one down after the first apex, don't tip in too soon for Charlies II and then nail it after the little crest, letting it run all the way out to the kerb.

Chin on the tank down the not-straight, and have a breather before brake chicken into Park.

Camenbert - I get you now. I thought you referring to the former mining town.

I'd not back off going through there either. Or the famous QC, or the college.

No matter how intrigued you might be, don't taste your own earwax.

How about someone else's?

I knew someone who had a cat that loved earwax...
