In this dilemma or crisis, I turned to this tradition or principle

I was scared to death – but my mother’s voice kept coming back to me from childhood, “Tell the truth and you won’t get hurt.”

I said, “But I can’t go back to school now. I’ll be 35 before I get my degree.” She said, “You’re going to be 35 anyway. You might as well be 35 with a degree.”

Someone asked the man who had fallen down the stairs, “Are you hurt? Shall we call an ambulance?” But my friend said, “We don’t ask him if he is hurt. We ask a doctor.”

I didn’t know whether to leave or to stay, but my friend said, “You ought to keep your promise.”

Once I did it, I’d never know if it was right or wrong. My aunt said, “Well, the world isn’t going to send you a telegram about what to do. You can trust what you want to do , as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.”

principles:
Carpe Diem - Sieze the day
Turn the other cheek.
Pray on it.
Go with intuition - gut
No worries
Don't ask why water is wet
Don't look back
Live for now, but remember the future.
Don't forget where you came from.
Remember who you are
Suck it up and do it.

dilemma or crisis:
major to take
whether to switch roomates
