Fanpop Users What is your "motto?"

johnminh posted on Oct 22, 2007 at 07:34PM
Inspired by Crazy-Chica's soapbox "Some 'Love' Motto ideas!" link what is the motto on your profile page? Have you changed it?

Mine is "Take what you can eat, and eat what you take (Buffet words of wisdom)."

I've also thought of changing it to "Do not speak - unless it improves on silence." - Buddhist saying. However, I think I break this rule on a daily basis here on fanpop! LOL! =)

Mine is

"I'n not grumpy, I'm endorphinly challenged."

It stems from me in the mornings, and my friends asking me why I was so horrible before school, but by lunch (and three Dairy Milks later), I was the cheeriest person ever.

Since I got here its been the same:

"Life without me, would be even more unbearable"

Its a quote taken from my favorite movie, Interview with the Vampire, said by Lestat to Louis. And besides I like thinking that statement is true :p

Used to be an abbreviated version of a quote from my all-time favorite song, "So Long, Astoria" by the Ataris. It's a kickass reference to the Goonies, but it's still awesome even if you've never seen the movie. The quote:

"So long, Astoria! We found a map to buried treasure and even if we come home empty handed, we'll still have our stories, battle scars, pirate ships and wounded hearts, broken bones and the best of friendships."

Now, it's from the Gregory Maguire book Mirror, Mirror: "The eye is always caught by light, but shadows have more to say."

Well I did change it to:

"The thing that makes a fantasy great is the possibility that it might come true. And when you lose that possibility, it just kinda...sucks."

Then I came back to my original one, I keep going back and forth between those two.

BTW, thanks Dara..I absolutely adore yours, LOL! It's funny!

My motto used to be "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind" That was said by Gandhi. I hoped it would make me seem intelligent :) After a while people realised I wasn't though so now it is "There are no stupid questions. Only inquisitive idiots"

I like Kirsty's motto.
If life gives you lemons, throw them at mean people in the street and hope it gets them in the eyes.
