2. “Do one kind thing for yourself each day that does not involve buying something. Do one kind thing for someone else. And if you are yourself on the verge of being unkind, stop and reflect. What is your long-term goal? And how will what you are about to do help you accomplish that?” “Do you want a productive, trusting relationship with your colleague? A connected loving relationship with your partner or child? Will lashing out really help you accomplish that, or will it build walls?….” Dionne Kasian-Lew

3. “Never postpone a prompting.” Thomas S. Monson
