The 30-Day Blogging Challenge: Day 30 A Motto or Philosophy

Day 30 of the 30-Day Blogging Challenge. You know what that means. This is the last day (SO PAY ATTENTION). ;)

When I saw what Day 30 was I immediately thought of Phil from Modern Family, my favorite TV show. I will be sharing some quotes from "Phil's-osophy," but first some more serious stuff.

Something I heard that I really like is "don't do anything that could hurt yourself or another person." In other words, use your common sense and don't hurt people (that means NO VIOLENCE, PEOPLE). So driving while you're drunk, fighting a war (though I know how it can be "necessary," I prefer the diplomatic route when it comes to ANYTHING), shooting guns at people, smoking (and that hurts other people, too, because we're breathing the nasty stuff in), and many other things. If everyone listened to that, there truly would be world peace. So why doesn't anyone do it?!?! It's so much simpler and easier. So help me spread the word! :D Post this motto/philosophy/whatever you want to call it on your blog, use it as your e-mail signature, share it with your friends, anything that will help tell people about this. Then tell your friends to spread the word. I know I can be a dreamer, but it doesn't hurt to dream and help, right?

Now some quotes from "Phil's-osophy," which is a book of philosophies that Phil made up:

"If you love something, set it free. Unless it's a tiger."

"When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be all like, 'What?!?!'"

"You can tell a lot about a person from his biography."

"Success is 1 percent inspiration, 98 percent perspiration, and 2 percent attention to detail."

"Always look people in the eye, even if they're blind. Just say, 'I'm looking you in the eye.'"

"You only get one chance at a first impression. I suggest Julia Child because it’s easy to do."

"The most amazing things that can happen to a human being will happen to you if you just lower your expectations."

"Dance until your feet hurt. Sing until your lungs hurt. Act until you’re William Hurt."

"Take a lesson from parakeets: If you’re ever feeling lonely, eat in a front of a mirror."

"Never be afraid to reach for the stars because even if you fall, you’ll always be wearing a Parentchute. TM."

"Older black ladies make the best iced tea."

"Watch a sunrise at least once a day."

"If you’re ever in a jam, a crayon scrunched up under your nose makes a good pretend mustache."

Which quote was your favorite? Leave a comment! :D (And remember to spread the word)!

Hey, *I* told you that philosophy (though yes, I heard it from someone else).

And you're right - it just makes sense. People have a bazillion rules about everything when basic morality boils down to just that - don't do anything that hurts yourself or another person. Voila!

Looooove Phil's-osophy. :) I probably like the iced tea one best. :P

Oh, and the Parentchute (TM).

Great philosophy! It really makes a lot of sense. But I guess that's why it stuck with you.

And Phil's-osophy is hilarious! Thanks for sharing. I'm kind of sad to see the 30-day challenge end, although it's been a trick to keep up!

There were 3 that made me laugh out loud, but my favorite was the one about looking people in the eye, even if they're blind. Not too long ago I went to a training class and they emphasized listening and looking people in the eye while they are talking, so that's been on my mind lately.
