The Grammar of Life

Said a Professor of English:
Live in the active voice, not the passive.

Thank more about what you make happen
than what happens to you.

Live in the indicative mood,
rather than the subjunctive.

Be concerned with things as they are
rather than as they might be.

Live in the present tense,
facing the duty at hand
Without regret for the past
or worry for the future.

Live in the first person, criticizing yourself
rather than finding fault with others.

Live in the singular number,
Caring more for the approval of your own conscience
than for the applause of the crowd.

And if you want a verb to conjugate,
You cannot do better than to take The verb ‘to love’.
