In your member profile, there is space for your motto in life.
Wocca's motto is "QUID PRO QUO"
This is a Latin phrase that translates to "something for something." This term is used in financial circles generally to describe the mutual agreement between two parties in which each party provides a good or service in return for a good or service.
A more simplistic alternative is "tit for tat".

What does your TP "MOTTO IN LIFE" mean?

Ok, I've moved it out of the Introductions forum.

Now, for the question.

My current motto is "If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments"

That's thanks to Despair Inc.

"Live for the now"

A freind from where i used to work told me that years ago, just before i went on my first proper travels.
I was out on the town with some mates one night to say farewell, i'd already been drinking since lunchtime with the guy from work and others (we buggered off for a pint at lunch and didnt go back to work ), whilst i was out i saw the guy from work (Dave), he was very drunk, still in work clothes and trying to get a taxi home. I got him to carry on drinking with my group. After we'd had a few, my group were goin to a club so we said see ya later to Dave (He was proposing to some random people at the time).
ANYWAY, 2am and we're in a taxi on the way back from the club and we saw him walking down the road with a red canister.

The next day the newspaper reads:

"Drunk and drugged man, tries to set fire to historic pub".

When we left him, he'd gone to another pub where the patrons thought it'd be funny to drug im and steal his wallet. Dave decided he needed revenge and obviously you know the rest. But it was the patrons fault he was drugged up to the eyeballs.

Dave's serving a 6 year sentece in the slammer right now.

Before we left him that night he said Matt......matt.....uuuummmm....Matt! Live for the now. ok mate?

So there ya go.

"Laughter is the Fountain of Youth - that and a great martini..."

Laughter helps one get throught the best and worst of times. It diffuses tense situations, allows one to be self-depracating without being moribund, aids the healing process (physical and emotional), slows the aging process, improves brain function, makes others smile, makes you (one's self) smile, brings joy and harmony, and creates those cute little lines on your face that we call character.

If all else fails and laughter does not do the trick - a great martini will take your mind off the world for awhile.

Or... As Mr Isa just said:

"If you can't laugh at yourself - laugh at someone else!" (Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck!!)

On another site, I use the motto "LIFE IS FOR LIVING"
Perhaps the one I like best though (not mine) is: "LIFE IS A VERB NOT A NOUN!"

There is always: "Life is a four letter word..."
