Do you have a motto or a tagline that you live by, that sums up who you are and/or what you do?

My motto in life is "Life's too short to be miserable" -- it's worked out pretty well for me so far. There are others, like "Let everything you do be done in love" from 1 Corinthians 16:14 as well...but the first one is my favorite?

What's everyone elses'?

"What would Charles Bukowski do?"

I can't say its always yielded positive results, but I am having a good time.

I'm recently gone with "Survive and Thrive". It's short, catchy, and rhymes, plus it has help me focus myself to some decent results in online poker as of late.

When I'm gaming (RPG or console/PC) it's "Kill it, before it dies!"

For life in general, there is a feeling that was summed up in one of my favorite stupid movies, "Bubble Boy"

"Don't live in regret, esse."

I don't use the literal quote (but it is funny hearing it in Danny Trejo's voice) but that idea has helped me be a more balanced person, since 2000. I have a hard time letting things go, especially when it was a bad choice or something that blows up in my face.

The biggest thing that I've tried to teach my kids, and it's a mantra on long car trips.

"Mean people suck."

It's a short, simple way of telling them to treat people how they'd like to be treated.

"You can always get more money"

I try never to sweat anything relating to money too much. Sure sometimes it sucks when you don't have much. Or if you realize you spent too much. But really, as long as you have your health, and your mind, you can always go out and find a way to get more money, no matter how hard it might be to earn it. Never let money make you turn on the ones or things you love.

Can I steal that? I really like it.

Mine is "If this doesn't work, I'll always think it should have." But it's less of a motto and more of a quip.

"God helps those who help themselves."

Has a good and bad connotation to me, but I believe it's true.

Got it inked on my leg, the last line of Pearl Jam's Grievance:
'I will feel alive as long as I am free'

Free isn't meant in the patriotic sense here but instead in the personal, mental/emotional sense.

One: Do you wnat to be important or do you want to achieve something.

Two: By the age of 40, a man is responsible for his own face.

Three: Regret breeds weakness. Regret achieves nothing. Regret is like a disease that attacks the internal organs and then destroys.

I know that's three but I am old.

I suppose it's still "kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out". That was the one from the airborne and it still works for me.

From my childhood at Camp Dudley I learned to put "The other fellow first"

On the golf course it's "Well at least I still I have another 99 strokes"

At work it's "And that is why God invented voicemail"

And in life it has been "There is a madness to my method"

In the fire service, it's "First in, last out".

In life in general, I go by this saying: "When you use rational thought, you're hindered by just that, rationalle and thought. But, when you're good and crazy, the sky's the limit!" Comes from the Tick, and it's a rather good indicator why I decided to run into burning buildings in my spare time.
