THE ART OF GETTING ALONG
Sooner or later, a man, if he is wise, discovers that life is a mixture of good days and bad, victory and defeat, give and take.
HE LEARNS: that it doesn’t pay to let things get his goat; that he must let some things go over his head like water off a duck’s back.
HE LEARNS: that carrying a chip on his shoulder-is the quickest – way to get into a fight.
HE LEARNS: that buck-passing acts as a boomerang.
HE LEARNS: that carrying tales and gossip about others is the surest way to become unpopular.
HE LEARNS: that giving a mental lift by showing appreciation and praise is the best way to lift his own spirits.
HE LEARNS: that the world will not end when he fails or makes an error; that there is always another day and another chance.
HE LEARNS: that listening is frequently more important than talking, and that he can often make a friend by letting the other fellow tell his troubles.
HE LEARNS: that all men have burnt toast for breakfast now and then, and that he shouldn’t let their grumbling get him down.
HE LEARNS: that people are not any more difficult to get along with in one place than another, and that “Getting Along” de¬pends 100% on his behavior.
