    Mom: "Just do your best and to hell with the rest," which she probably borrowed from someone.

    Nana: "Everything in moderation," which I know she borrowed, probably from some saint whose name I've forgotten.

    Some are just not worth the effort.

    I know you believe you understand what you think I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
    They required my favorite quote in my high school year book. I think that is still it! and I don't remember who said it.

    My one liner is this --
    BE THE MEDICINE

    ... meaning:
    behaving in a way that
    lightens a mood
    lends encouragement
    embraces difference
    celebrates similarities
    brings light not heat
    heals hearts, minds, relationships and spirits

    The corollary is:
    SOMETIMES THE MEDICINE IS BITTER

    ... meaning:
    shattering toxic illusions,
    calling out destructive BS,
    not tolerating bullying ,
    pointing out passive aggression,
    fighting injustice
    at root of suffering
    can create more pain
    similar to ripping off
    a band-aid
