What is your motto in life?

I am curious to know about everybody's motto in life, and compare that to my beliefs. Thank you.

:)

    Jun 8 2012: Thank you for the question. I feel that a motto must be stated in context.

    Humankind seems comprised of individuals, who collectively advance understanding of nature, or reality, or what-is. Our share of some 6 trillion historical and current man-years is our brief life, perhaps 80 years. Before one’s life is over, will he/she conform to a factional cause or fulfill his/her potential to contribute to humankind?

    In this context, my motto is: develop the character to act; with kindness, humility, and focus.
