Things My Mother Taught Me

 

If you study

you will learn

if you work hard

you will be rewarded

if you say something

mean what you say

if you give your word

stand by it

if you lie

you will be discovered

if you are honest

you will have a good reputation

if there are crowds

don't follow them

if you do something

do it to the best of your ability

if you cry

do not be ashamed

if you give

give generously with compassion

if you promise

fulfill your promise

if you are fair

you will be treated fairly

if you love

love with passion and respect

if you do all these things

you will lead a good life

and be happy as long

as you live.
