What Really Matters
The following story uses words that contain four, five, and six syllable words.The syllables within these words contain various phonetic elements previouslyintroduced.
Avoid
generalizations
 about people. Trynot to say someone is
unreasonable
 just tohave something to say. Or do not pretendyou are
incredulous
 over someone’s actionswhen you really are not so
flabbergasted
. This kind of
overreaction
 is
actuallypreposterous
 and can also be
irresponsible
. You do not want to
stereotype
 a person. Asan example, the scientist left his
laboratory
to become a
politician
. Is that right orwrong? Only he can decide. Some athleteshave earned
professorships
. Does thatseem ludicrous—not at all. The truth isthat each person must make his owndecisions. Read
biographies
. A person canstart as a technician and become aphysician. What is
desirable
 for one would be an
extraordinary
 mistake for another. Don’tgive
consideration
 to a person’s religious
denomination
 or accent. Give people full
consideration
 , and
especially
 take the timeto get to know the most
splendiferous
person of all: you!
