If you can start the day and get going without caffeine or pep pills,

If you can always be cheerful and ignore little aches and pains,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can be understanding when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when through no fault of yours something goes wrong,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor and sleep without drugs,

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against race, nationality, or religion,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,


Then...

You are almost as good as your dog!
