The dead are soon forgotten. The thing you do to others can be done to you. Fools worry about everything. Family comes first. Talking too much gets one in trouble. Parents think their children are saints, different from other children. People who have nothing to do, or are bored do stupid things to kill time. Don't invite trouble.
