No. 3: Don’t be a turd. If you’re strong, be a protector, and if you’re smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons. Do not wield them against the weak.

No. 4: When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine.
No. 5: Doesn’t matter what it is — earn it. A good deed, reach out to someone in pain, be of service. It feels good, and it’s good for your soul.
No. 6: God is real, God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.God is real, God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do. — Chris Pratt #GodIsReal #GodLovesYou Click To Tweet
No. 7: If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed, because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do: lock the door, sit down, get all the pee out first. And then when all the pee’s done, poop, flush, boom. You minimize the amount of time the poop is touching the air, ’cause if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you’re peeing on top of it, stirring up the poop particles that create a cloud and it goes out and everyone in the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.
No. 8: Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it’s so good for your soul.Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it’s so good for your soul. - Chris Pratt #prayer #ChrisPratt Click To Tweet
No. 9: Nobody is perfect. People are gonna tell you you’re perfect just the way you are — you’re not. You are imperfect. You always will be. But, there is a powerful force that designed you that way. If you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. And, like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.
God bless you
