Do you have a philosophy of life?

My personal philosophy of life is “you must live life to the fullest without infringing on other people’s lives and also you must give to get”. these two have always worked for me but people try to take undue advantage of it sometimes. What is your philosophy of life and how has it helped you in life?

"Life sucks but the people make it worth living." :D Despite life's setbacks, it's still beautiful because we meet people who make it worthwhile to fight back and face challenges.

yes life seem to suck but if you do your best to do what you ought to do you will make it worth living and this is why we need to have a principle to live by,whats yours?

That's it! But there's these two other philosophies I believe. "It's better to have loved and lost Than to have never loved at all." - Alfred Lord Tennyson. and "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Alfred Einstein. I'm betting my life on the second one. :D

I am the type of person who is working hard for my loved ones" I will make all my loved ones happy no matter how much I will work for it" another thing is, enjoy life to the fullest since our life is unpredictable! Do anything that I want to do and say anything I wanted to say to every one!

Yes. you have to live each day like there is no tomorrow but you must also plan for tomorrow if it ever comes. We have to live for the moment but we must also try to cover our backs for the future too.
