Ten Commandments of Human Relations

Speak To People: There is nothing so nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile At People: It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call People: The sweetest music to anyone's ears is the sound of his own name.

Be Friendly And Helpful: if you would have friends, be a friend.

Be Cordial: Speak and act as if everything you do is a genuine pleasure.

Be Genuinely Interested In People: You can like almost everybody, if you try.

Be Generous With Praise: Cautious with criticism.

Be Considerate With The Feelings Of Others: There are usually three sides to a controversy: yours, the other fellow's, and the right side.

Be Alert To Give Service: What counts most in life is what we do for others.

Add To This: A good sense of humour, a big dose of patience and a dash of humility, and you will be rewarded many-fold.
