Every minute of every day, you choose to be a wise person or a fool. Only you can make that decision. These 21 suggestions will help you judge yourself. I must confess that I don’t know of one day that I followed all of them.

Are you a wise person or are you a fool?

• thinks before speaking

• dwells on the good in others at all times and in all circumstances.

• forgives others throughout the day.

• never puts another person down, neither behind their back, nor to their face.

• compliments others.

• encourages and helps others.

• sacrifices his own will or desires for the pleasures of others.
