Good People

If you can start the day without caffeine; If you can get going without pep pills; If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains; If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles; If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it; If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time; If you can forgive a friend’s lack of consideration; If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when,    through no fault of your own, something goes wrong; If you can take criticism and blame without resentment; If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him; If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend; If you can face the world without lies and deceit; If you can conquer tension without medical help; If you can relax without liquor; If you can sleep without the aid of drugs; If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or color, religion or politics; then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.
