Be true to yourself

Believe in God

Be kind and thoughtful to others

Place yourself in other's shoes

Stick up for yourself when needed

Be quiet when needed

Love unconditionally

Love conquers all

Forgive

Help others

It's best to give of your time

We are all human; however, look
for improvement in oneself

When we ask about things that make us have suspicious minds we get in trouble.....

I've learned to clean up your own back yard.

Elvis taught me:-

1. That we're all human no matter our status in life
2. That its good to laugh but to cry when you need to
3. Don't expect perfection from yourself or others cos we're only human, just be the best you can be
4. That a smile can brighten someone's day
5. Never take anything for granted
6. When you find true love in your life, hang onto it with all your might
7. Life's to short to be serious all the time, so act like a kid when you get away with it GMHO :D
8. Listen to your loved ones and friends when they tell you that they love you / give you a helping hand and ignore the opinions of others who don't know you and only want to put you down
9. Help others when you can in a caring and giving way
10. No-one knows everything, learning is an ongoing process that lasts your whole lifetime

1. Be careful who you call friends.

2. Beautiful people don't have an easier life.

3. The eyes really are the windows to the soul.

4. It is possible to love someone so much it hurts.

5. A stray lock of hair falling across his forehead makes it hard for me to breathe.

elvislady:D:king:


Very nice..short and sweet and oh so true.

I learned a lot from Elvis myself.

1. To be thankful for everything I have and that which I do not have.
2. To be generous and never forget those who have less.
3. To work hard, keep in good health and shape.
4. A house is not a home unless LOVE lives there.
5. Keep your eyes peeled for the one's who will take you, and hurt you.
6. Pay them back with kindness, inspite of the tears.
7. Live as though you were dying, and never give up your dreams.
8. Believe in the God who made us all, the beauty of every tree & leaf.
9. Respect your elders, especially family, even when they do not deserve the respect.
10. Don't ruin your life, for fame and money, and fill your home with people who should be living in their own home. Not in your living room, helping themselves to most of your home and your privacy and your life.

I mean it, if everyone did that....we'd be much better off.

Well, one of those things actually includes not spitting to your front while riding a bicycle. And it would be "more difficult to put baseball cards between the spokes".

Well, I'll just call it humor (and Elvis had it). Does it belong in music?

This was really beautiful Jeanette and so true about Elvis!! He had lot of pain in his heart and his soul, but he never forgot to smile and laugh. This is one thing why I admire him.

Elvis has taught me that no matter what your situation, no matter what your background, you can go on to succeed, and in ways you probably never even thought of.

What I also like about the guy is his lack of fixed opinions about what is to be considered male or female.

I now have the guts to do anything.. To sing a medley using the strangest combinations, such as "why me Lord - heartbreak hotel - when my blue moon turns to gold again" and I could use feathers or a pink dress and still be accepted by the crowd.
