  2. Be pure of body, and partake of nothing that will tempt you to lassitude.
  3. Carry a knife with a handle of bone.
  4. Fear not.
  5. Avoid coyotes, and damselflies, and men who have touched foxes: for these may walk in dreams.
  6. When those around you wonder, be ready.
  7. When those around you are sore afraid, be cold and forthright.
  8. The shore of dreams is the place men go to die.
  9. Sleep little.
  10. Watch for us.
