The Humans concludes with an amazing list of pieces of advice from the narrator to the humans he has grown to love. What would be on your own advice list? Suggestions and comments welcome below. (Thanks to Rhiannon for the idea.)

You may already have lived the happiest time of your life and you should accept that.

Don't live as if you will die tomorrow, because you would live totally differently if you really thought that. Live, instead, in order to make yourself proud when you look back.

Prioritise love above all things.

The process of falling in love is a process of opening the self and making yourself vulnerable to being known, and that is why it's so frightening and so important.

You will fail, but make sure you've always tried, and then you can still feel proud.

This life is all there is and all you will ever have, be or do. Let the resulting responsibility to get it right be constantly at the back of your mind, but don't let it depress you. There's plenty of time.

You will spend your entire life learning how to live it and even at its end, you will still not know.
