Overview

One day I woke up and realized that my daughter would soon be leaving home—and that I still had so much I needed to say. So I started writing down the lessons that I wanted her to remember. That collection eventually grew to 365 original proverbs divided into eight categories: Character, Values, Love & Marriage, Sound Thinking, Practical Tips, Success, and The God Factor. The book begins with a heartfelt note from Dad to Daughter, and each chapter features a brief but deeply personal introduction.

Now that my own daughter is all grown up with a child of her own, this seemed like a good time to invite others to share whatever wisdom is contained in this collection. Though written for a young lady, few of the proverbs are actually gender-specific, and the timeless principles they embody point the way to a life well-lived, whether you belong to the greatest generation or the latest generation.

Here are a few favorites:
-- Pride quite naturally leads to prejudice, for those who think too much of themselves cannot resist thinking too little of others.
-- Habits that you control are virtues. Habits that control you are vices.
--In reality, cleanliness is nowhere near to godliness. Nevertheless, it's still well ahead of filth.
-- Style can be expensive. Good taste is free.
-- Be a contributor or be somewhere else.
-- Fun is morally ambidextrous.
-- Marriage is forever, so when choosing a partner exercise at least as much caution as you would use if you had to pick a permanent hairstyle.
-- If you ignore injustice you become a moral accessory to its consequences.
-- Think critically but speak kindly.
-- The faith that is not hastily placed is not easily shaken.
-- Beware of logical lies.
-- Don't spend a lot of time to save a little bit of money.
-- When applying for a job—the younger you are, the more important it is to dress conservatively.
-- Don't mix apologies with excuses.
-- Shoulder the criticism; share the compliments.
-- When you greet an older man, shake his hand firmly. He'll be favorably impressed.
-- When your plans have failed talk to an optimist. When you feel that your plans are foolproof talk to a pessimist.
-- The worst thing you can say when you're angry is that which you're most likely to speak.
-- It's more important to prioritize than to organize. Doing your work efficiently does not mean that you are doing important work.
-- There is no safe passage to the extraordinary.
-- Fear is the fence around the world you live in.
-- Prayer is designed to be a first step in every activity of life, not a last resort.
-- Bad things do not come into our lives simply so that God can take them away, but so that he can show us that he matters more than anything else.
