How to Be



You shall be, but not key

Be great, but don’t be prodigious
Be little, but don’t be invisible
Be successful, but don’t be resounding
Be servile, but don’t be worthless

Be imaginative, don’t be ingenious
Be useful, don’t be fertile
Be charming, don’t be loving
Be capable, don’t be talented

Be powerful and mighty
Don’t be superior and scary

Be modest and reticent
Don’t be humble and silent

Be idealist, but no dreamer
Be realist, but no dealer

Control yourself steadily
Don’t tempt your neighbour

Take things seriously
Don’t ask questions

Show some novelty
Don’t invent the wheel

Listen to me carefully
Don’t act like puppet

Be curious, but don’t be child
Do love, but don’t be kind
