I don't know that I have a personal philosophy, but here are a few quotes I like:
"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth."
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
- Ian MacLaren
"Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived."
"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... Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain
"It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society"
- Jiddu Krishnamurti
