Do you have a specific quote you call it your favourite/that you live by?

I keep a book, titled, "Words to Live By" where I sometimes write my favourite quotes in which I find especially meaningful.

Let me share with you one of my favourites,

" Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don't strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt."

"Figure out what you want and learn how to ask for it." that's my favorite quote :)

I love that you are compiling a book of your most favourable quotes Artyling, what a super idea. It is personal to you. Maybe I might just do that myself as you have inspired me.

A quote I live by which came from my grandmother, is ..."Make no one wiser than yourself".
Another I like which is light hearted but has deeper meaning, is "Never let anyone appropriate the remote control".

"Carpa Deim," Latin. Seize the day. To make it yours. To take or make opportunities.

I really like that one. Thank you.

Three of my favorite quotes are:

"If you can dream, but not become a slave of your dreams. If can think, but not make your thoughts your ultimate goals. If you can meet triumph and disappointment but welcome them in the same way"

"Never look in another's plate, unless it is to see if there is enough food in it"

"When you sow ass, you will reap s..t"

Glad to be visiting this topic again! Isn't it amazing how words have such effect on us?

@eewwaa: Chinese sayings have one of the best sayings! And the quote you shared has so much truth!

@radiate: I'm glad the idea of having a quote book inspired you! Do share as and when there comes a quote meaningful to you! :)

@seth2sol: What language is that?

@euterpe: I'm glad you like that one, I like that one too and I try to live by that everyday.

@lucius, "Never look in another's plate, unless it is to see if there is enough food in it", that's a funny one!

It's Latin. It's a dead language.
