    We all know the clichés (go big or go home - golden rule), but does anyone live their life by or simply hold firm belief in any specific mantra(s) or motto(s)?

    Mine is a Walt Whitman quote "All can be forgiven of he whom has complete candor."

    Another is what I consider a basic rule of respect for both self and others, "Live within your means."

    Good topic..should be enlightening.

    Of course 'do unto others...', but as a manager I do not ask someone to do something I am not willing to do or learn myself.
    In projects I always measure twice and cut once.

    Never underestimate the power of stupid people.

    George carlin coined this with "in large groups" at the end, but one stupid person can make a hell of a difference in this world. It's usually not a good difference either.

    We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

    Never argue with an idiot in public. People passing by won't know which one of you is the idiot.

    My Mother used to say this all the time. Thanks for the memory. :D

    I live by "The Golden Rule" and one of my motto's is "Surround yourself with good people".
