  3. Seach for yourself.Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you,but no one can walk it For you.
  4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration.Serve them the best foods,give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.
