unicycles asked you: Do you have a quote that you live by?

my /ask still won’t let me type in the reply box. It’s been like a month now. So I still reply like this

I have a whole list of them that I (try) to live by from various historical/philosophical/creative/spiritual/psychological sources, but probably the one I like and find helpful the most is from an Audioslave song,

" Even when you’ve paid enough
Been pulled apart or been held up
Every single memory of the good or bad
Faces of luck

Don’t lose any sleep tonight
I’m sure everything will end up alright
You may win or lose
But to be yourself is all that you can do

Chris Cornell is probably one of my most favorite singer/songwriters :-D
My second-most cherished quote is probably, ” I am the wisest man in the world because I know one thing - That I know nothing” by Socrates when contemplating why the oracle told him there was no one wiser than he. :-D
