Life Motto: do you have one?
January 21, 2019 2:51pm CST
Do you have a motto, a quote, a phrase, something like that you apply to your life? Some of the greatest minds have given us great guidance with simple quotes, and many have said they can sum their life philosophies up into a single phrase. "Life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced." - Soren Kierkegaard "Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder." - Henry David Thoreau "The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large." - Confucius

@fivecandles That quote is from the Bible. It's always been my favorite verse. There's a line in one of Wendell Berry's novels where one of the characters quotes that verse and then says, "I'm not always able to do this, but those are the right instructions." "

All good quotations. The Plato one in your picture is the basis of my teaching, especially with little ones. Albert Bandura calls it "modeling." A favorite random one that guides me: Questioner: How are we to treat others? Ramana Maharshi: The are no others.
