Perfect for myLot

September 16, 2008 7:03am CST
I was looking at a quotation site, and I came across one I think fits myLot perfectly. It's by a motivational writer called William Arthur Ward: [i]Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work. [/i]What do you think? Do you know of any other quotes which could apply to myLot?

I think it works great for the site...it certainly hits close to home. I also like the one "Be True in All That You Do". [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

That's a really great motivational poem that we can all use for life, really, and there are a few that would also apply to Mylot or more accurately, to those of us trying to help put the world to rights, by expressing our opinions here. This one is from Barbara Hoffman: Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey! And from Muhammad Ali: The man who has no imagination has no wings. I am sure we all have little sayings, bits of Scripture, things drilled into us in our formative years by grandparents and parents, that help us cope with the many different problems we face. Every little bit helps, as we try to help each other to greater under- standing of life itself.

Hi paid2write that is a lovely quote and can be applied to so many other things too..some in my own life!! As for a quote for MyLot is the one I live by 'Treat others as you would like to be treated..speak to others as you would like to be spoken to'..that is also the one I taught my children and it has held well in their life so would also apply that to Mylot especially recently with all the squabbling we have had...littleowl

I think you are absolutely right about that. I believe in respecting other people and not being abusive.

That's a wonderful quotation. It does apply to mylot. Do more than be fair -be kind is good, especially here. What about: " Ensuring the welfare of others is ensuring your welfare as well.

You are right, of course, these are things to apply to life, and not just to myLot.
