What is your favorite motto?

Asked by XOIIO (18120points) December 31st, 2010

What is your favorite motto or quote? One of my own favorites it “Life sucks, get used to it”, but another one I have embrases my geek side a bit more. Tear up pussy? I’d rather tear up bandwidth!

I’m not sure that the second one ill stay around that long, but back to the point, what is your favorite motto\ sayings and why?

To quote the immortal Father Jack ” DRINK !! ....GIRLS !!! & FEK OFF!!”
not quite as profound as Gandhi but I like it, Reason? unfortunately this means more to my ilk than the revered words of Mahatma.

When I’m annoyed with someone at work, not a totally rare occurrence, I say to myself or someone else Woody Allen’s quote from “Annie Hall” ...

What I wouldn’t give for a large sock with horse manure in it.

It’s silly, but somehow that image of pelting someone on the head with that sock relaxes me.

Procrastination is just like masturbation: in the end you’re only screwing yourself.

Never give up on something you can’t go a day without thinking of.

“Yo soy positiva por que la vida es corta”
rough translation
“I am positive because life is short”
It just sounds cooler in Spanish than English

I also really like this one:

“If you want to die, do that; but if you want to live, get on with it.”
