Do you have "words to live by"?

It can be serious or humorous, but please keep it clean. I'll get you started: "Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield."

Trust nobody, question everything. The only thing certain is death eventually and how And how perception is received, deception is conceived, s*x, drugs, decadence, and greed.

"Slay Evil Immediatly, but take no life in the process"

i put that on the saya for my training sword except its in katakana and it says "the sword that protects slays evil instantly, but takes no life in the process"

also "if words fail, then blows must follow"

and "if you must draw your sword, draw it with honor, and when you sheath it again, be sure that it still maintains the honor you drew it with"

Thanks. That translates very well for the modern soldier.
Report as
true, but the modern soldier has lost all honor in combat, and they take lives without neccesity, most conflicts that soldiers are invloved in could be solved without the waste of life, and it is unfortunate that they dont realize that they can slay evil, without slaying the person commiting the evil.
Report as
True for some if not most, but there are those who do soldier with honor.
Report as
some, but they are few and far between, the only thing i wish for in the world is for a worthy opponent in a fight, so i can push my limits and test my skills, that is a fight with honor, no rage, no malice, simply a way to better yourself and another man, not to kill needlessly, or destroy, and not to lay low, but to raise up one another. the soldiers that see this, have my respect for their honor, because honor is a gift a man gives himself, but the soldiers that kill without regard to the effect it has, and with callous disregard to the harm it does them to take a life, have no honor, and i dont understand why they are called fit to serve. it is a failing of the system, one that will hopefully be resolved eventually. this is from the perspective of a martial artist and a swordsman though, sometimes i feel like i should live in fuedal or pre-meiji era japan.

1. Don't overthink, just let it go.
2. Be silly, be honest, be kind.
3. Everyone makes mistakes. Learn from them.
4. Don't cry because it is over. Smile because it happened.
5. Dwelling on other peoples faults multiplies your own.
6. Love more, worry less.
7. Want less, suffer less.
8. Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.
9. Don't mourn for the past, don't worry about the future but live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
10. Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.
