Philosophy of Life?  How about just doing what is necessary to survive in these times.  Never mind the philosophy, just beam me back to the early 1950s so I can be 16 again.  There are a few changes I would like to make.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 

Pride is a useless burden. Best to consider yourself the least important in the group. 

Do what is right, even if you're the only one doing it, because doing so is its own reward.

"Do not underestimate the task you undertake.  Overcome your hopes and fears and meet them face to fate."

"The poisons born upon your tongue will never serve to slight me.
For I have delt with many fools and suffer your kind lightly.
Just as you sow so shall you reap, and I my friend have plenty.
So sit ye down and eat your words Now that your plate is empty."

In the 90's there was "The Ricky Lake Show" and one of the guest on the show when coming out on stage to an audience booing repeated said, "Whatever, whatever,. . . whatever." 

I never forgot that. And to this day, some of you may have seen my us of "Whatever." on NT!

History is not there for you to like or dislike. It is there for you to learn from it and if it offends you, even better, because then you are less likely to repeat it. It is not yours for you to erase or destroy.
