Question of the Week #47: Words to Live By
This week's Question of the Week was inspired by a conversation Susan had with @gretchenrubin (of The Happiness Project) who mentioned that she was asking people about their favorite expressions or words to live by. What's yours?
The one I remember the most is something my dad always used to say to me:
"Work hard, play hard but don't get the two mixed up."

"Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused."

My favorite expression, I use it all the time:
You can't tell which way the train went by looking at its tracks.

We went to my Dad's all-school reunion sometime in the mid-'60s. There was a display of class mottos and this one for a 1920-something high school class made a real impression on me:
"Don't grow a wishbone where your backbone should be."

Here's the one that @gretchenrubin mentioned to me that she heard: "if you're not sure whether to have kids, do; if you're not sure whether to go to law school, don't."

"Where there's life, there's hope." I thought it was Anne Frank, but I've since seen it everywhere, so I'm not sure.
