Philippians 4:8-9  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true,

(All that is agreeable to unchangeable and eternal truth)  

whatsoever things are honest,

( Whatever is grave, decent, and venerable)

 whatsoever things are just,

(Whatsoever is agreeable to justice and righteousness)

whatsoever things are pure,

(Whatsoever is chaste)  

whatsoever things are lovely,

(Whatsoever is amiable on its own account and on account of its usefulness to

 others,  whether in your conduct or conversation)

whatsoever things are of good report;

(Whatsoever things the public agree to acknowledge as useful and profitable to

 men; such as charitable institutions of every kind, in which genuine Christians

 should ever take the lead)  

if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,

(If they be calculated to promote the general good of mankind, and are thus

 praiseworthy)  

think on these things.

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. KJV

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind;
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet;
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them;
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true;
To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best;
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own;
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future;

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile;
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others;
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear; and too happy to permit the presence of trouble;
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds;

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
