Mottos of life?

Mottos, philosophies of life?

What are your pithy statements, lessons learned, or words of wisdom you choose to live by?

The key to life is how you handle Plan B.

Everything in moderation, including moderation (sometimes you have to be extreme).

Feeling like life isn't worth it? Go make a kid laugh.

"philosophies of life?"

For me to live is Christ, to die is gain.

He [Jesus] must increase, I must decrease.

And this, too, shall pass.

Measure twice, cut once.

Do it slowly and get it right the first time.

My Mom likes to write poetry. But, her favorite by Grellet.

I shall pass through this world
but once.
If therefore, there be any kindness
I can show,
Or any good I can do,
Let me do it now.
Let me not defer from it.'
For I shall not pass this way again.
Grellet.

( Not that I abide by that command all that well. I think My mom pretty much does tho.
Other. commandments.

The job of a newspaper is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

And though he be but little, he is fierce.

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.

Fighting is the best thing a man can have in his soul.

If you tell me I can't; I will prove you wrong.

And

I'm faster than you are!

To be a success in this world, you don't need to know everything, just where to look for the answer; a fool who knows where to look is wiser than one who refuses to solicit information from others.

Life is worth doing, and anything worth doing can be difficult and sometimes outright unpleasant.

Sometimes life may leave you in the middle of the road, defeated and hurt....defeat is not losing. Defeat is merely a realization of something that needs to be done to win. Dust yourself off, and keep on marching. One only loses if they refuse to get back up.

The food chain is only as relevant as the specific animal you are looking at....a cat can turn a dog into dinner if it's mean/smart enough. Same can be said for the business world...some people advance through superior performance, others through sheer ferocity or sneakiness.
