What is your motto or philosophy in life. If you don't have one, steal one from the internet or a movie...

Archimedes used to demand just one firm and immovable point in order to shift the entire earth;

So I too can hope for great things if I manage to find just one thing, however slight, that is certain and unshakable.

Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen.
-Martin Luther

Has been a testament to my life for the past two years. Hold the line on my principles and my integrity.

This far, no further.

It has been a trail of tears, but even though I am not a dogmatic religious person, Martin Luther's speech during the Emperor's Edict of Worms is great inspiration for anyone fighting insurmountable odds. The whole quote goes:

"Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen."

And it is my belief, that God has helped me. Not to get too religious but I think God and I have a real good system worked out.
I still think I would make a great pope.

My favourite motto is in my sig lol

Sometimes " THE MAJORITY " only means all the fools are on the same side.

Alot of history would be very different if people had just had the strength of will to stand against things they knew to be wrong even when outnumbered.

As far as philosophy's go my favourite philosophical writing is Sun Tzu's Art of War I study it fanatically and use many of its teachings and principles in my life every day

I have three fairly basic ones-

If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it. This applies pretty much to everything you can think of, things, relationships, people...The wisdom lays in knowing whether or not something is actually broken.

KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid. No sense in over-complicating things. I have to fight this at work constantly with my crew. They are like a bunch of monkeys trying to fuck a football at times. Why put six bends in a piece of pipe when you can do it with one or two. When they are pulling wire, they just can't seem to grasp the concept of pulling the wires THROUGH a box that those wires are not joining to others in that box. The less splices you have to make, the quicker it is, and it all fits in the box better.

#3 is actually hand in hand with #2 - It's ALWAYS something simple.

Favorite Quote:

"Never let the bastards grind you down"

Been planning on getting that tattoo'd around my left wrist for some time, just gotta decide with which latin version to go with.

Favorite Philosophy:

"I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
-Robert Heinlein.
~Atla!
Before God I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but Peace! -MajGen Rupertus, USMC.
