As the topic indicates... What is the philosophy, quote, saying etc... that you base you life mostly on and use basicly every day in your life with yourself and your surroundings?
I mainly follow the quote : "To be or not to be? That is not the question! To BE! But to be what?" it kind of makes me think about every choice i make in my life and every path i choose to take with myself and my surrounding.

I guess its this: "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself"
So, generally I try to act nice and be fair...
But if someone hates me and is not being 'nice/fair' I'll just ignore them.
Even though this does conflict with my personality. I am a very cynical and hateful person. So...

I actually don't know...

I agree about "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself" i would also add "It's better to regret something you did, than something you did not do",hate when after some time ask myself what would be if i done something i didn't.

I have learned over the years of my life that you always go with where your initial instincts lead you. Usually the better route.

I used to believe that life can be made beautiful by finding passion and love..
But as i am going on through this life all hope is lost and i am left with this music form that tells me its OK there are thousands of people like you going through the same thing.

So for me metal is my philosophy

Interesting.

I understand your point though, mostly due to metal have a lot of meaning behind the lyrics and presentation.

I don't really know if I am following any certain, definitive philosophies in my life. At times I seek respect by respecting others, and at other times I'm really friendly towards others withou seeking respect. As for what's going on in the society, I just have a dark image of tomorrow. It's not a bleak future filled with agony, but even if it's gonna be a better future, we'll all share a common pain psychologically.

A friend in MS told me once if something huge hit earth and everything ruins at once , then nothing really matters after that, so always I always imagine everything may end suddenly with no clear reason and it's not predictable but it will , so I should enjoy of things I can enjoy.

well I don't either, but the problem is that, I can't really find the real enjoyment,hmm I mean it's not easy, there are things that make enjoyment for sure , but they all leave me with the feeling of emptiness and most of them last so short. None of them last that long they can be really named enjoyment,so mostly I try to be indifferent even to the enjoyments, ugh! a bit confusing.

I can find philosophies that I relate to and find interesting. Many speak to various truths about our world. However, I think the world is too complex and each human so unique, that really the only philosophy anyone can follow is their own. Perhaps it is based mostly off of a religion or someone else's teachings. But in the end we all interpret on some level.

I think this forgotten topic deserves to be re-animated. It's interesting to read people's views on life.

As for me, I start by trying my best to not harm myself, my loved ones or mankind. When I succeed at that, I try to take the next step and actually improve the well-being of the previously named. I don't think having a strict set of rules works, because people and situations are so radically different and ever-changing, however it might help to have some principles, guidelines, or rather suggestions, that are not written in stone, but perhaps at least written in wood (shitty expression, I know). My main princple in life is to be relentless when facing ignorance and evil that actually causes harm, but to be gentle, kind and forgiving, when facing ignorance, conflicts and other unpleasent things that can't actually harm anyone. In following this principle, I have found at least some inner peace and happiness in a world, where both seem to be a rare thing.

"Like most others, I was a seeker, a mover, a malcontent, and at times a stupid hell-raiser. I was never idle long enough to do much thinking, but I felt somehow that some of us were making real progress, that we had taken an honest road, and that the best of us would inevitably make it over the top. At the same time, I shared a dark suspicion that the life we were leading was a lost cause, that we were all actors, kidding ourselves along on a senseless odyssey. It was the tension between these two poles - a restless idealism on one hand and a sense of impending doom on the other - that kept me going."
