The Eight Rules of The School of Life



Often at school we learn about Maths and English. But what about the school of life? What swift summary of the building blocks of what makes life work better. Check this video out. This is inspiring. Reflect on this and share with those you love.

Third, know your insanity,
We cannot be entirely sane. But it is a basic requirement of maturity we try to understand the ways which we are insane. We can warn others we care about what our insanity might make us do early and in good time. And before we have caused too much damage. We should be able to have a ready answer and never take offense if someone asks us so in what ways are you mad. Most of the madness comes down to childhood.
