Be kind to everyone, even when they aren't to you. Always use manners. Be passionate, stand up for what you believe in. Admit to your mistakes, correct them. Respect women. Be polite. Work hard. Show compassion for children and the elderly. Exercise, eat right. Never lie. Be honest, virtuous, and admirable. Give a portion of yourselves to others. Keep good friends close, they get harder to find as you grow older. Be uncommon.
Family is everything. Be a good son, brother, uncle, and godfather. Spread love.
Look for someone to laugh with, to cry with, to be boring with. Spontaneous and adventurous, mature and ridiculous. Big heart, joyful demeanor, humble and confident. An open mind, a wise tongue, and a touch of innocence.
