I love different philosophies in life because they are usually very poetic, realistic, and inspiring. I have a favorite one which is written in Tagalog and it goes this way:


"Ang hindi lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan."


Translation:


He who doesn't look back to where he came from could not reach his destination.

One of the mottos I live by in Chinese is this: 


知足常乐 (zhi1 zu2 chang2 le4) - Know Contentment, Always Happy. 


The key to a happy life is knowing contentment.

I think in life, a person should do what he loves. What you love will work best for you. I admire those people who managed to succeed, turning their work into something useful to society. And certainly, if you do what you love, then the quality of your work will be much higher. Or you will force yourself to do work without pleasure and bestowal.

Probably one of my mottos would be:

Do you want to do the best - do it yourself
