    A Quote You Live By

    Following on from the song lyrics to live by, is there a quotation, piece of poetry or prose you live by.

    I have had this pinned to my office wall for many years:

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
    Mark Twain.

    successful people have the habit do doing things that unsuccessful people dont like to do. The successful people dont like to do them either, but there dislike is subordinated by there strength of purpose

    or if thats a bit much grasshopper

    Fighting advice -- Go ugly early.

    Don't do stupid things, don't associate with stupid people, don't go to stupid places, and don't live in stupid areas.

    Be kind and courteous to everyone you meet but have a plan on how to kill them if necessary.

    Morons are equally distributed among time and space, so it does not matter where you go. You are very likely to find at least one in a location where you least expect it.

    "Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it." -- Albert Einstein
