One an old friend of mine told me "Plan everyday like you'll live forever, but live like you'll die tomorrow"

Weird, but I kind of like it. Basically saying you should make the most of life :cool:

Something more serious for Monday morning...

From Michel de Montaigne, French thinker and toff, credited with the invention of the essay. (I can sense the antipathy already...) Lived 1533-92, so predated Descartes.

Montaigne was such a sceptic that he believed that humans cannot attain certainty, and he rejected general and absolute statements and all dogma.

Because of this stance, he found it difficult to find a personal motto which was not an absolute statement, and which was not based on some arbitrary assumption about the nature (and even the existence) of knowledge. Even Je ne sais rien (I know nothing) was clearly an (unjustifiable) assertion of fact.

Eventuatlly he settled on Que sais-je? (What do I know?) since only a question can avoid arbitrary assumptions.

I like that one, and hearing it now, I'm thinking it's the sort of saying that I'd need to stick in my uni homework diary lol! :p: Well when I start later next month. I'll have to learn how to focus on hard stuff again

I've got a new one now, which i got out of a book, and realised i started saying quite a bit, not through conscious choice or anything, but i just have.

"There's no need to apologise, i've already forgiven you"

mines depend on what mood im in but they are usually:

"march to your own drumbeat" my mummy said tht one
"just because someone throws the ball doesnt mean you have to catch"
"a journey of a 1000 miles begins with one step"

however on occasions i believe
"life is a sexually transmitted disease and its 100% fatal"
"im as confused as a hungry baby in a topless bar"
but the best quote ever is "catriona your gorgeous" now thts a quote to live your life too! lol.
