Could you be remembered forever?

Asked by LornaLove (9931points) September 27th, 2016

Could you come up with your own personal proverb, based on your own inner wisdom that could go down in history forever?

Remember, wise words and amazing insights were written by ordinary people like you and I!

You could even play on a current well-known proverb.

I’ll kick off with one.

“Be the author of your own life, that way, you always know what is going to happen next!”

and a play on a proverb

“People who live in glass houses, have no privacy”.

Have fun with it or show us just how wise you really are!

Never assume anything. And if you must assume something, assume to never assume anything.
Honesty is always the best policy. But some things are better left unsaid.

I’d rather be a smartass than a dumbass.

Just googled it… I guess this isn’t original, after all. Though, I will insist that I did come up with this on my own. Just turns out I didn’t come up with it first

Quotes from Great Mahatma Gandhi -

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

@All: A lot of people are sharing quotes from other people… Even I mistakenly did so. @LornaLove was asking for a wise proverb or saying of our own devising. I have not seen many originals, here.

This is my excuse for over-preparing for nearly any circumstance. And when you’re on a camping trip and need a wound field-dressed, you know who to come to for Dermabond and steri-strips.
