These four following "rules" were found in a series of 'fantasy' books by Terry Goodkind called the Sword of Truth series. They were called "Wizard's Rules" in the books, but I like them, and I hope you will too dear Reader....
(1) People are stupid. They will believe any lie, either because they want it to be true or because they fear that it is.
(2) The best of intentions can cause the greatest of harm.
(3) Passion rules reason.
(4) There is magic in forgiveness; magic in the forgiveness one gives, and more so in the forgivenness one recieves.
The fifth book in the series is already out and on it's way to my house, and it is sure to contain the fifth rule..
Tout s'en va, tout passe, l'eau coule, et le couer oublie.
