Problematic's Rules of Living, part 2

While it would be great if inspiration came all at once, it doesn't. Thus, I present you the second installment of my rules of living.  And if they seem a little less trivial than they should, just insert them into the first list as you feel appropriate.

Rule 13: "Always be comic in a tragedy. What the deuce else can you do?" GKC
Rule 14: I will never leave a fallen comrade
Rule 15: It is better to suffer an injustice than to do an injustice
Rule 16: Victory favors the well-prepared
Rule 17: Be the light at the end of someone's tunnel (Shamefully stolen from Escapist's blog)
Rule 18:  Love never fails. I Corinthians 13:8
Rule 19: If you're going to crash, crash hard. (Stolen from February Rain)
Corollary to Rule 19: Injuries are inevitable, so there's no point avoiding them. Live vicariously.
Rule 20: "Life itself is a quotation." Jorge Luis Borge (your-hay Louise bor-hay)
Rule 21: That which does not kill me makes me stronger
Corollary: That which does not kill me postpones the inevitable
Rule 22: When people are free to do as they please, they usually end up imitating each other.
Rule 23: It's always darkest before it goes pitch black
Rule 24: "Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady."  Edith Head
Rule 25: Invisible friends count as real ones.
