Pretty self explanatory, sum up your philosophy on life in a quote or song lyric.

MORRISSEY! - the more you ignore me the closer I get

"The more you ignore me; The closer I get; You're wasting your time...I will be In the bar With my head On the bar; I am now A central part Of your mind's landscape Whether you care Or do not; Yeah, I've made up your mind...

Beware! I bear more grudges Than lonely high court judges; When you sleep I will creep Into your thoughts Like a bad debt That you can't pay Take the easy way And give in; Yeah, and let me in..."

- I guess this is why I'm better suited working from home :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So what, so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Everybody is just a stranger but
That's the danger in going my own way
I guess it's the price I have to pay
Still "everything happens for a reason"
Is no reason not to ask myself

If I am living it right.

(John Mayer)

My Way (Frank Sinatra):

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention

I'll Be OK

I cant think of any one quote that fits all but there is a line from a song that myself and a friend will text to one another when we are at work. We work in different places but both work night shift and we have probably sent this back and forth 50+ times,
"Never did I want to be here again and I don't remember why I came" makes me giggle every time.

I don't gamble and I don't like country music, but Kenny's Rodger's gambler;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jj4nJ1YEAp4

I think of these lines as a life metaphor;

You've got to know
When to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done

Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away
And knowin' what to keep
'Cause every hand's a winner
And every hand's a loser
And the best that you can hope for
Is to die in your sleep"

I wouldn't be able to think of just one thing.

You may say I'm a dreamer
but I'm not the only one
I hope one day you'll join us
and the world will live as one
--I'm an idealist, I can't help it.

FAIL= First Attempt In Learning
--I don't know who first said it first, but I'd never heard it until earlier this school year when Trevor Ragnan of Train Ugly did our professional development. I've been working for a couple years on having a better mindset, working on myself *for* myself, and his whole Growth Mindset and the Train Ugly concept really resonated with me.

Along those lines, the five tenets of Taekwondo
Courtesy
Integrity
Perseverance
Self Control
Indomitable Spirit--
I've worked my whole life at those, b/c that's how I was raised, but now I have something tangible and I can put a name to what I try to live by.

You are you, that is truer than true. There is no one youer than you.
--cuz you know what, sometimes the other stuff is hard to live by, to work at, and at the end of the day, that's all you can do is be the best you you can be.

"I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person"

We'd be here all night if I started listing song lyrics.

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got!"

Such a versatile saying. It works for continuing with the good things you appreciate and enjoy having, or as the impetus to make changes of any degree to improve things if you're not happy.
Can't remember where I first heard it but it was years ago and it just struck a cord!

I have 2 songs. First one:

"Pass Me By"

I've got me ten fine toes to wiggle in the sand.
Lots of idle fingers snap to my command.
A lively pair of heels that kick to beat the band.
Contemplatin' nature can be fascinatin'.
Add to these a nose that I can thumb,
And a mouth by gum have I,
To tell the whole darn world if you don't happen to like it deal me out,
Thank you kindly Pass Me By
Chorus: Pass Me By-y, Pass Me By-y-y.
If you don't happen to like it Pass Me By.

I've got me two great shoes that never saw a shine.
Trousers I can hold up with a laundry line.
A lovely patch that hides an awful lot of spine.
Shirt-tails flyin', I'm a bloomin' dandelion!
Add to these a grin from ear to ear,
And all the proper gear have I,
To tell the whole darn world if you don't like the assortment deal me out,
Thankyou kindly Pass Me By

Chorus: Pass Me By-y, Pass Me By-y-y.
If you don't happen to like it Pass Me By.

Lyrics: Carolyn Leigh
Music: Cy Coleman

Second one: "Turtle Blues" by Janis Joplin

Ah, I'm a mean, mean woman
And I don't mean no one man, no good, no.
I'm a mean, mean woman,
I don't mean no one man, no good.
I just treats 'em like I wants to
I never treats 'em, honey like I should.
Oh, Lord, I once had a daddy,
He said he'd give me everything in sight.
Once had a daddy,
Said he'd give me everything in sight.
Yes, he did
So I said, "Honey, I want the sunshine,
You take the stars out of the night.
Come on and give 'em to me, babe, 'cause I want 'em right now."
I ain't the kind of woman
Who'd make your life a bed of ease,
No I'm not the kind of woman, no,
To make your life a bed of ease.
Yeah, but if you, if you just wanna go out drinkin', honey,
Won't you invite me along please.
Oh, I'll be so good to ya babe, yeah!
I guess I'm just like a turtle
That's hidin' underneath it's horny shell.
oh yeah, like a turtle
Hidin' underneath it's horny shell.
But you know I'm very well protected -
I know this goddamn life too well.
Oh! Now call me mean, you can call me evil, yeah, yeah,
I've been called much of some things around,
Honey, don't ya know I have!
Whoa, call me mean or call me evil
I've been called much of some things, all things around,
Yeah, but I'm gonna take good care of Janis, yeah,
Honey, ain't no one gonna dog me down.
