"We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another" -- Jonathan Swift

How to be Smarter: If you're walking with someone, holding hands, and they trip a little, you tighten your grip to prevent them from falling. If you would let go of someone's hand and just let them fall, you shouldn't have agreed to hold their hand in the first place. So if someone you love starts to trip a little in life, you need to tighten your grip, your friendship, your relationship with them, to help prevent them from falling. If you didn't want the responsibility of having to take extra-good care of someone when they are going through a hard time, you shouldn't have agreed to love them in the first place. But please only let yourself love the right type of stand-up, honorable, kind people, that would do the same right back for you in an instance.

How to be Prettier: If you poke around in my bag at this very moment, you will find a well-loved travel-size bottle of this lovely hand sanitizer that does not dry out your hands.

How to be (less) Awkward: If your roommate (or sibling if you live at home) has friends over, even if they aren’t your friends, it is still nice to poke your head out from your room and say hello.
