Instructions for Life in the New Millennium from the Dalai Lama:

Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
Follow the three Rs: Respect for self / Respect for others / Responsibility for all your actions.
Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.
Learn the rules, so you know how to break them properly.
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
Spend some time alone every day.
When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
Be gentle with the earth.
Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
