    Your Philosophy of Life?

    Do you have a philosophy of life, a quote or saying, an idea that you follow to live your life the best you can?

    For example, "carpe diem", seize the day.

    The purpose of life is a life of purpose. ~Robert Byrne

    Life is the hyphen between matter and spirit. ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827

    As we struggle to make sense of things, life looks on in repose. ~Author Unknown

    Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can. ~Danny Kaye

    etc.

    Please share.

    My philosophy of life is a folkish form of Asatru. It can't be summarized in a phrase. Mainly though I believe in bettering myself, bettering my environment and living responsibly. I believe the best should be promoted and that in society people should be given the option of failure. In other words the complete opposite of modern social theory.

    “The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.”

    -James A. Michener

    That sums up my view on life pretty well =)

    There is no such thing as the words 'I can't'. Can is a word always followed by the word 'do' and never by a solitary 't'.

    I can go on and on about my philosophy but I'll sum up my personal philosophy like this:
    It's survival of the fittest, so I try to become as fit in every field I need to be as possible.
