What's your motto? Hmmmmmm...

In all the conversations, chats, talks we all have regularly with all our friends and pals and acquaintances, we hardly ever communicate about "our motto.” I would have to assume that most people just simply do not have a motto.

I do think everyone, whether they realize it or not, has a philosophy of life and basic rules of how they conduct themselves. I guess if they had a motto, it would reflect these. And of course, a person's motto would reflect the person, him or her self.

Let's take a look at the actual mottos of 30 well-known people.

Julie Andrews: "When in doubt, stand still.”

Hugh Hefner: "This above all: to thine own self be true.”

Ray Charles: “God helps those who help themselves.”
