  • To have a friend, you must be a friend, starting with yourself.
  • The greatest hunger a person has is to be needed. Help create that feeling in others.
  • The greatest virtue is kindness. You can't love everyone, but you can be kind to everyone.
  • Don't try to impress others. Let them have the fun of impressing you.
  • Be enthusiastic. Nothing of consequence was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
  • Be positive. Positive people attract others, while negative people repel.
  • You have greater impact on others by the way you listen than by the way you talk.
  • Gossip cheapens the one who gossips more than the one gossiped about.
  • Call a person by his or her name and use it often in conversation. 
  • Communicate cheerfulness.
  • Differences are bound to occur and can be resolved if conflict is managed in a polite manner.
  • If you are given to making fun of someone, be sure it is of yourself. 
  • Be genuinely interested in others. Get them to talk about themselves. 
  • A smile doesn't cost anything and pays big dividends. It makes you and everyone else feel better.
  • Be the first to say: "Hello! Good to see you."
  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
  • The golden rule is where it all begins and ends.
