Let me be a little kinder, Let me be a little blinder To the faults about me;
Let me praise a little more, Let me be, when I am weary; Just a little bit more cheery, Let me serve a little better Those that I am striving for. Let me be a little braver When temptation bids me waver, Let me strive a little harder To be all that I should be; Let me be a little meeker to the brother that is weaker; Let me think more of my neighbor and a little less of me.
Don't send funny greeting cards on birthdays or at Christmas.
Save them for funerals, when their cheery effect is needed.
The happiest people I know as a nation are the Burmese;
their brightness and cheeriness are proverbial. Kindness to animals is one of their greatest 'weaknesses'; no Burmese will kill an animal, even if it is to put it out of pain.
