Full of Cheese and Good Advice

Forgive this non-hipster foray into the world of universal morality, but I really like this excerpt from the weekly bulletin at Temple Baptist Church in Charlotte. Although it's full of cheese, it's a hip question followed by a good list of canny aphorisms:

"Want to Get Along?"

1. Keep chains on your tongue and always say less than you think. Cultivate a pleasant, persuasive voice.

2. Keep an open mind on all controversial questions. Discuss without arguing.

3. Be cheerful. Keep the corners of your mouth turned up. Hide your pains, worries, and disappointments under a smile.

4. Never engage in gossip. Make a rule to say nothing about another unless it is something good.

5. Don't be too anxious about your rights and having favors repaid. Let the satisfaction of helping others serve as its own reward.

Sounds like it's straight from Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People."

You know what they say about Baptists and Plagarism, right? No? Yeah, neither do I.
