Life mottos

Sometimes people ask what are the goals, rules, mottos, etc. by which I live, and I tend to fall in the following three:

1. "I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now." -- Bob Dylan

2. “If by setting one's heart right every morning and evening, one is able to live as though his body were already dead, he gains freedom in the Way. His whole life will be without blame, and he will succeed in his calling.” -- The Hage Kure

3. "Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends," and "I have called you my friends." -- Jesus of Nazareth

In short, live young, realize you could die any day, and always be ready to put the good of others ahead of yourself.

I figure if I can live this, I will have a full, satisfied life regardless of any situations that I may encounter.
