Many people find inspiration and strength in sayings of famous people and celebrities. Beautiful sayings give us impetus to struggle with adversities, find hope and just makes us happy. You may love Mahatma Gandhi's quote 'Nobody can hurt me without my permission'. Or you may adore and adhere to Oscar Wilde's quote 'To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance'.

Do you have any phrase or saying you live by?

I always try and live by 'the golden' rule'. One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself. Even if you are not treated as kindly as you treat those around you, your conscience is clear.
A big one: Go with the flow. So pertinent in these times, yet so hard to do at times. Another good one: "don't sweat the small stuff."
I never used to have a motto, but over past year, I have become very reliant on the statement 'Keep Calm and Carry On'.
"What comes around goes around" Which means what you put out will come back!
My personal favourite is:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. " - Mark Twain
When life wears me down I read and reread this quote to find inspiration to dream and discover all that life has to offer :)
I have a bracelet with a quote from the poet Charles Bukowski: "Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink." Knowing Bukowski it's possible that he meant this literally, but to me it means that sometimes you just have to make the best of things and carry on regardless.
Haha, that's very cool :)

My husband and I have had the motto, "Everything will turn out okay in the end" for a long time now. And somehow, it always does. It cheers us up, at least, and gives up a bit of hope to carry on with.
It's not the strongest or smartest who survive . But those who are most adaptable to change..
It's one I have to keep reminding myself when I find I'm overly paranoid and worrying about other people's opinions of me: "What other people think of me is none of my business." It's very powerful, snaps me out of that space really well sometimes.
"Genius is in Perseverance" - Niccolò Paganini
when everything is going well, life sticks its foot out and trips you up :-)
There's two I use.....

'Take one day at a time'

'Keep Calm & Carry On'

They keep me going in adverse situations!
Whatever the mind can conceive,
and believe,
the mind can achieve.
