The RAS Rules: Ten Commandments for the Road [Toward Self-Respect]..


1.) Give gifts to your parents; barring catastrophe, never take their money

2.) Beg only forgiveness, steal no idea, and, borrow only big stuff that won’t get lost

3.) Wash neither your face nor your brain, but brush your tongue

4.) Save your voice, and your money; use your hands

5.) Live within your means; financial independence is its own autonomy

6.) Bring candor to the discourse, theory to the debate, but experience to the podium

7.) Do your own laundry, or wear it

8.) Look while you listen, hear when you see, and slow down before you stop

9.) Live on faith, but watch your step

10.) Eavesdrop, but spread no gossip; stare, but never point; and, when your socks don’t match, step into your boots and strut.
