Jefferson’s Ten Rules

  • Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
  • Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself.
  • Never spend money before you have earned it.
  • Never buy what you don’t want because it is cheap.
  • Pride costs more than hunger, thirst and cold.
  • We seldom repent of having eaten too little.
  • Nothing is troublesome what we do willingly.
  • How much pain the evils cost us that never happened.
  • Taken things always by the smooth handle.
  • When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, count a hundred.

–Thomas Jefferson
