Never think or speak of that which you do not wish to happen.
The whine, the sting and the sigh—these three must never appear in a single thought or a single word.
You can win ten times as many friends by talking happiness as you can by talking trouble. And the more real friends you have the less trouble you will have.
Speak well of everything good you find and mean it. When you find what you do not like keep quiet. The less you think or speak of what you do not like the more you have of what you do like.
Magnify the good; emphasize that which has worth; and talk only of those things that should live and grow.
When you have something good to say, say it. When you have something ill to say, say something else.
