Letter to a Grandson


For Arthur
Rules of the Game

1. Be benevolent. Benevolent means willing the good of others.

2. Be honest. Even when it hurts.

3. Be as good as your word. When you pledge or say you’re going to do something, make it an iron rule that you will do it. No exceptions.

4. Be prompt. Never allow other people to wait for you.

5. Start the day doing the chore or obligation you least want to do.
