Rules of Propriety : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

For anyone who has been reading the postings with George, you will understand this, and I ask that you all post your rules of propriety. My rules come from an even older book than Georges.

And God spake these words saying: 1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me 2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth; thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them 3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain 4) Remember the sabbeth day to keep it holy 5) Honour thy father and thy mother 6) Thou shalt not kill 7) Thou shalt not commit adultery 8) Thou shalt not steal 9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor 10) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maid servant, . . . nor anything that is thy neighbor's. Holy Bible, King James Version

These are the Rules of Propriety I lead my life by. I also have a few philosophies that I think are important to keep in mind.

First, "Don't knock it 'til you've tried it." Second, "Question everything."

I look forward to hearing yours!

Well I hate to sound like a "copycat" but I have to say that I live by the same rules.

Everyone knows Steerage has more fun! Besides, we are the better half!

Along with the ten commandments, mine are as follows:

"Take up your cross and follow me." "Do unto others as you would have done unto you." "He that is without sin shall cast the first stone." and finally, "Never cheat on your cyberhusband." (tee hee)

All very good rules to live by, (especially the cyberhubby part)!!!

Okay, I also live by all those rules listed above, but one other handy one I read in a Tom Hanks interview and adapted to my own life is "Never go to sleep on an argument" and my boyfriend's mother says "Never go to sleep enemies, because you'll awaken worse enemies".

Oh yeah, and I can't forget this one: Never trust anyone who says "Trust me" :-)
