Hey friends. Every person lives with a motto of hiw own. Mine have too which is "Benevolence to all, malice to none." I've been surviving with this motto with much patience, sacrifice and well-wishing the people I meet and feel happy, comfortable and peaceful. I think in this turmoil world of today, it's a crying need to live in amity. I hope for all the best to everyone. May Allah give us the opportunity to live in peace.

Well, my friend. If you want to give happiness to your family, you'll have follow some rules supported by Allah (God). You'll have to keep a good environment sorrounding your family. First, you'll have to hold firm faith on Allah. Then, you'll have to be good, stay good and do good. Stay benevolent to all, malevolent to none. Of course, you must defend yourself against evil when required. Rely on Allah in every good step of your efforts. May Allah help you.

My personal motto is "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not for man." It reminds me to put in my best effort in whatever I do and not to skive or do things superficially when no one is around. It's more of accountable to God, not to man.

Hey dear friend! Whatever you do for good cause, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not for man. Because Allah (God) alwasy is on the side of the good, not the evil. When you'll work all with your efforts for the good, Allah also will help you for your success. And you'll be rewarded for your good deeds in the life hereafter. So, be good, stay good and do good loving your Lord. Allah will note your doings into good account. May Allah bless us all.

Through my nearly thirty years I've been through a lot and thus I've developed my motto for my life to be "That which doesn't kill me only serves to make me stronger." There have been many things that I've been through in my life that would cause most people to just want to give up, but because I've developed this mantra of strength, I feel like I've been able to get through my life in a very effective manner.

Well, my friend. It'll be easier for you to follow your motto of life through being and staying good and being benevolent to all, malevolent to none. If you can be able to have strong faith on Allah, you won't be killed and you'll be stronger. As long as you'll hold this faith you'll get no excuse of giving up. Your life will turn much more effective and signicant to live. Have a great life.

Hello, Well my motto is quite simple. To be a good man, and to stay that way. I think this is the sole thing that will serve every other purpose of life. I know its not so easy as it sounds to be. People take years to perfect and purify themselves. But at least I am not the last one among them to realize it. God bless you all

Very well, my dear friend. Your motto is quite similar to mine. Yours is "To be a good man, and to stay that way." Mine is "Benevolence to all, malice to none." To follow this motto one must have to be good and stay good. There was a time during my teenhood when I was able to overcome all the evil temptations that were trying to draw me to the world of darkness and sin. Fortunately, by the grace of Allah, I avoided them all with my patience and sacrifice by staying holding a strong faith on Allah. I feel an eourmous peace keeping this faith in mind. May Allah enable us all be good and stay good. Have a nice day.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" has been my motto. I've noticed that, when I smile at someone, they usually smile back. I may have changed their day from a bad one to a better one, just by smiling at them. Sometimes, if I'm having a bad day and someone smiles at me, it makes me feel better. Even if I don't change anyone's day with a smile, I've made myself feel good. Moods are contagious and I like spreading good ones. I agree with you wholeheartedly about amity! In this day and age, we certainly do need that more than ever.

Yes, my friend. Your feeling good is the symbol of your patience and sacrificial attitude. As to me, I don't know if I'm always wmiling or not, but whenever any person meets me on the road, find me smiling. In most cases they smile back and some people shows the curtsy to inquire about my well-being whom I don't even know. I think it's the result of my deep faith on Allah and it's his gift to me in return. May Allah grant us all good relation with people.

That's very good of you, my friend. Try on and on until you achieve success. But try only for the good doings, not the bad ones. I appreciate your love for your family which is a rare thing in many people's life. I also love my family, ralatives, friends and well-wishers very much and pray for their well-being to Allah. Have a nice day.

My motto in life is, "If others can do it, why can't I?" It's actually strange for me to have this motto because sometimes I feel like I really cannot do things on my own, and most of the time I am pessimistic, which is very ironic to what I'm supposed to believe in.. haha!

Hey friend. You're a bit pessimistic doesn't prove that you'll never be able to be optimistic. You're also a bit young to learn from life. In time it will be ok and you'll turn optimistic. Have a nice day.

Hey friend, You're very tactful in your relation with people. And you're careful about your doings before thinking on its aftermath. I also see you're also depended on your fate which will happen without warning. Reads like you love to be discussed by others than let alone. We all must be careful in choosing friends. We also have to look before we leap into the work. It's wise to depend of fate, but too much dependence of fate turns a person idle and inactive. We must try for the best without the hope of losing it. And lastly, if you do good jobs and favour to others, you're must to be talked about by people. Have a nice day.
