“If you can’t take me at my worst you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best”

Be kind whenever possible. It’s always possible.

Instead of giving people a piece of your mind, give them a piece of your heart.

You have not lived until you’ve done someone a favour for which they can never repay you.

But also:

Never give away what you cannot afford to lose.

"You would worry less what people thought of you if you knew how seldom they did."
Helps me with my social anxiety.

He who expects nothing shall not be disappointed.
If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well.
Manners maketh the man.

Jogel I prefer the Oscar Wilde version: if a job's worth doing, it's worth doing badly.

Two wrongs don't make a right
If you haven't got anything nice to say, don't say anything at all
This too shall pass

Don't envy anyone unless you'd have the entirety of their life.

It's easy to notice things others have we want, but they've usually got things we'd not enjoy in the process so i always remind myself of that.

How you do anything is how you do everything.

Every new day is another chance to change your life

Don't sweat the small stuff

Pick your battles

Polarbearpaddle Tue 24-Oct-17 22:21:16

You reap what you sow

Trust your instincts

Kill them with kindness
