Lead singer Beyoncé Knowles is a singer-songwriter and according to Wikipedia, "wrote and produced almost every single track on the [Survivor] album." The quote is perfectly worthy here.

"Seize from every moment its unique novelty, and do not prepare your joys."

Not my fave, but I like (need!) being reminded to enjoy the journey as I often make long term goals, rush to the finish line, and then the accomplishment is entirely anti-climactic at best.

A couple more interesting variations:

The Gold-Plated Brazen Rule
This rule was described by Robert Axelrod in his book The Evolution of Cooperation and labeled by Carl Sagan. It was found to be the most effective strategy in the Prisoner's Dilemma game.

Be friendly at first meetings.
Do not envy.
Be generous; forgive your enemy if he forgives you.
Be neither a tyrant nor a patsy.
Retaliate proportionately to an intentional injury (within the constraints of the law).
Make your behavior fairly (although not perfectly) clear and consistent.


You're welcome, Al.

She didn't make human beings the only species that prefers foods that will kill us."   - Tom Naughton, Fathead (the movie http://www.hulu.com/watch/196879/fat-head - warning, the movie promotes cooked LC diets and features the Eades prominently as experts, so it would likely anger folks like Tyler)

"Until shortly before the common era, the very last 1 percent of human history, the social landscape consisted of elementary self-governing kinship units that might, occasionally, cooperate in hunting, feasting, skirmishing, trading, and peacemaking. It did not contain anything one could call a state. In other words, living in the absence of state structures has been the standard human condition."

- James C. Scott, PhD, The Art of Not Being Governed
