- Embrace the sunny side of everything and let your optimism shine.
- Think, work, and expect only the best.
- Celebrate the success of others with the same enthusiasm as your own.
- Forget past mistakes and focus on greater future achievements.
- Wear a cheerful countenance and share smiles with every living creature.
- Dedicate time to self-improvement rather than criticizing others.
- Be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to allow trouble.
