1. Don't crush the world's crown of wonder. 2. Make love in the time of cholera. 3. Don't start searching the lost time. 4. Don't be the catcher in the rye. 5. Don't do much ado about nothing. 6. Sing in the rain. 7. Don't kill a mockingbird. Or a seagull. No, it's not this one. What were we talking about? Oh, yes, about theater. 8. Don't spend time with fools under the moonlight. 9. Pretend it's holiday. 10. Don't look back in anger. Are there many more? You, lucifers, really like making fun of mortals, don't you?
