From Mother Teresa's rule...
::Speak as little as possible about yourself;
::Keep busy with your own affairs and not those of others;
::Do not interfere in the affairs of others;
::Accept small irritations with good humor:
::Accept censures even if unmerited;
::Give in the the will of others;
::Accept insults and injuries;
::Accept contempt, being forgotten and disregarded;
::Be courteous and delicate, even when provoked by someone;
::Do not seek to be admired and loved;
::Do not protect yourself behind your own dignity;
::Give in in discussions even when you are right;
::Choose always the more difficult task.
