The three rules of life, according to Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson.

1. Do not be afraid of anyone. Can you imagine what your life would be like if you weren't afraid of anyone?
2. Have a great bullshit detector, and learn how to use it, and how to apply it.
3. Be tender: Be open to the world, and in love with everything and everyone in it.

Bonus fourth rule: Practice how to feel sad without being sad.
