Welcome to Friday and don't worry about having to think to hard on a Friday. That's just wrong. tongue But I have a question to pose to you... What is your motto in life?

This doesn't have to be something profound or earth-shaking, but what drives you at this point in your life. Your 'Motto' doesn't need to encompass your entire life so far but maybe your life as it is now. Here are some examples of a Motto for your life:

The Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Life's hard. Get a helmet.

Build a bridge and get over it.

Live, laugh, love.

If you don't have a dream you cannot make your dream come true...dream big.

I had to think about this for a while and read a lot of other responses online. But I finally came up with two...I couldn't settle for just one..... smilewinkgrin

"Don't always go where the path may lead but go where there is no path and leave a trail!"

"Every person you touch, you leave a fingerprint, be careful, what your fingerprint leaves behind."

So what is your motto in life?

I did run across one that I thought was funny but not very nice. Here goes...

Some people are like a slinky...not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
Albert Einstein

I got more than one motto LOL. Besides the thing where I told you "pain is your friend" I got, "treat others how you want to be treated", "Judge Ye Not Or Ye SHall be judged (bible)", "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength" (bible), and that is only a selection of what I live of for my mottos lol

I love "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away" and my motto has got to be "Live and let live". People are too worried about what other people do. If it doesn't effect me personally in a negative way, it's not my business!

My father always had a saying, "Can't never could." I always thought that this was great, and my oldest son must have heard it a million times as he was growing up, as he was always saying, "I can't" in order to try to get out of doing things that he didn't want to do. He would always yell, "Oh, Mom, you always have so many old sayings!" lol My mother always said, "The remarks of the ignorant must be ignored." I think that this is so true. People are so quick to pass judgement about situations that they really no nothing about, and we often have a tendancy to take remarks that others make so seriously. We often literally beat ourselves up over something that someone else said that they really knew nothing about to begin with!
