Live by your wits. If you have none, solicit some maxims.

Be your own person; don't let other people tell you how to live your life.

Your philosophy for life


My mama told me: It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

She also said: Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty but the pig enjoys it.

So, it's only important to be nice to non-pigs?

I don't think you should have one particular thing you should live your life by as the parameters of society and the culture locally nationally and globally is forever changing. All we can do is be open minded to new experiences and choose what we think is right for each situation that comes along based on our past experience and knowledge. We can't just say be nice or thoughtful because we have to define those terms and everybody has a different definition of what being nice is.

At no time in your life should your butt be over your head unless you are on a roller coaster or have met that special someone.

Never eat or drink anything that comes out of your body.

Never join the military unless CONUS is being invaded and then you better.

If you are sick STAY HOME!! Don't bring you cooties to me at work because you want to be a "trooper". (Thanks wanker, now I'm sick for the holidays)

Just ask her. She may be thinking the same thing.

Don't be THAT guy.

Gentlemen hold doors open for Ladies. that way you can check out her pockets

Be honest first. Second, do what you should. Third, look out for yourself. Fourth, have good intentions.

First of all, never pet a burning dog.

And not that it's really a maxim per se, but the first thing that really came to mind when I saw this was a line from John Lennon's "Beautiful Boy"

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

Seek the greater knowledge that life offers.
Get your questions answered.
Cheat death with the knowledge obtained.
