The 'Red Fox' Says...

     1)    Never spend your money before you have it.
2)    Never buy what you don’t want, because it is cheap; it will be dear to you.
3)    Pride costs more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
4)    Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself.
5)    Never put off til tomorrow what you can do today.
6)    Think as you please and let others do so: you will then have no disputes.
7)    How much pains have cost us the things which have never happened.
8)    Take always things by their smooth handle
9)    When angry count 10 before you speak. If very angry, 100.
10)  When at table, remember that we never repent of having eaten or drunk too little.
