“T.H.I.N.K.”

Thoughtful. Honest. Intelligent. Necessary. Kind.

From One Day at a Time, p. 20:

“If only I can learn to quiet my mind before I speak! I do not want to act with impatience and hostility, for I know it will react on me. It is a mistake to think this requires self-control; patience can be acquired by learning to let go of self-will. Jonathan Swift said: “Whoever is out of patience is out of possession of his soul. Men must not turn into bees who kill themselves in stinging others.”
