Despite what kind of situation or
circumstances you find yourself in,
the important thing is to not be
defeated by your own timidity.

continue to advance with cheerful
optimism no matter befalls them.

Never cause fires!
Strictly guard against carelessness,
such as forgetting to turn off
heating devices or piggy-backing
and overloading electrical outlets.
