This here is what I said to my girlfriend when we started seeing each other. We have been together ever since.
Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie,
Lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal,
Steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink...
Drink in the moments
That take your breath away.
