Robots

Surrounded by robots.
Ideas and decisions
implanted by the unknown
control the populus.
Nothing is natural
Everyone knows what to do,
where to be, and
what to say.
I am alone.

Rodeado por robotes
Ideas y decisiones
ya estan hechas por todos
quienes estan bajo control.
Nada es natural
Todos ya saben todo que hacer,
a donde estar, y
que decir.
Estoy solito.

Marriage Advice

I read Robert L. Millet's Men of Valor a while back and loved it.  I need to go back and read it and write down some of the things in it so that I remember them better.  

One of the things I really liked about it was the advice he gives to newly weds.  Millet said that when his kids first started getting married, he had a laundry list of advice; but over time it's boiled down to two things that are needed to keep a strong marriage:
  1. Don't take offense
  2. Always assume the best
It's definitely not something easy or maybe even possible to achieve in this life, but it does definitely cover a lot of ground and has helped me better evaluate myself.  What do you think of this advice?
