Key Points from Book: Around the World in Eighty Days

Be calm in your life, no matter what happened. Think with a clear, cold brain

Count and predict your plan before embarking on a journey

Be a man of your words

Assess every situation objectively, put your emotions aside

Think positive about other people

Help people in needs, you’ll reap the rewards some day

Be loyal to your master, and you’ll be loved by him

Have resilience in facing every adversity of life

There are things money can buy, but there are things you have to strive for
