How to be perfect…

Excerpts from “How to be Perfect”

by Ron Padgett

Get some sleep.

Eat an orange every morning.

Be friendly. It will help make you happy.

Hope for everything. Expect nothing.

Be nice to people before they have a chance to behave badly.

Wear comfortable shoes.

Do not spend too much time with large groups of people.

Plan your day so you never have to rush.

Show your appreciation to people who do things for you, even if
you have paid them, even if they do favors you don’t want.

Don’t expect your children to love you, so they can, if they want
to.

Forgive your country every once in a while. If that is not possible, go to another one.

If you feel tired, rest.
