    Well, I don't have a single motto  that I live by. However, should I choose one, the it would be a Sören Kierkegaard quote:
    “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”

    There are several - but one of the biggest for me is live and let live.  I have never understood why some people feel entitled to foist their sense of morality on others.  Issues like gay marriage for example - not my business who marries who.   That's just one example of course out of many, but basically I believe in personal freedom, but I also believe that we should all love and respect one another as extensions of ourselves.  Compassion for others seems to be sorely lacking in a modern society that has become increasingly self-serving and judgmental.

    As I usually say to all the girls that come to me looking for a piece of advice...
    "You deserve to be happy"

    In my case I try to avoid negativity in my life.
    Whatever causes problems, I stay away.

    To love others as myself and to wish for them everything that they desire, even if it is to harm me.

    I've done this before and witnessed miracles happen. But it's not easy to return to that state and attitude. Self-concern gets in the way.

    But I desire to return, because I know that the world would be much better if I can maintain that viewpoint -- entirely unselfish and non-self-concerned.
