  1. True and the picture is so sweet. Are they shelter dogs.

  2. What a better world it would be if we would follow this decalogue! I especially liked #1 and #2 and #7 and #8. All are needed. Thanks for sharing these!

  3. Beautiful! 🙂 Peace be with you, always 🙂

  4. The only thing I would add is Travel. “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” — Mark Twain

    Lovely thoughts

  6. So simple yet so true. Incredibly powerful post. And I love the pups!

    Mi piace. Especially the first one: “LISTEN!”

    (What? no wolf cubs? Or pups?) 🙂

  9. Sono d’accordo su tutti e dieci i punti. A presto

  10. I like that you encourage us to listen at the outset. We Americans especially live in a ” talking heads” culture. We talk too much. The Bible teaches that Christians should be slow to speak, quick to listen, slow to become angry. (James 1:19) The whole world would be better if we conformed our lives to this teaching!

  11. Great list–I ‘specially like 4, as I do a lot of laughing about myself (takes the sting out of the craziness).
