Anyone got a personal philosophy they'd like to share? By that I mean the way that they ideally try to lead their lives, and which isn't a quotation from Buddha, Sun Tzu, Ambrose Bierce or indeed anybody but yourself.

--------------------
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
I'll tell you my story, man
Though I wish I'd never been born
I'm loose at the seams,
I've broken my dreams
And my hand it shakes the pen
Come on, come on now baby,
Let the good times roll again

If you love someone, let him go.

If he comes back it means he's forgotten his sandwiches.

Do not try to achieve perfection, as "artificial" perfection doesn't exist. Perfection is unachievable. Instead, enjoy the "natural" perfection, as yourself, nature...

For instance:
Instead of frustrating yourself trying to create the perfect painting of a landscape, go to the countryside to breath some fresh air.

Hmm. I read a commentary on Kant's Critique of Taste once, and there was a statement in there that really struck me. I'll have to paraphrase it, though.
Basically, it stated that people tend to express their tastes in the negative. They will always start declaring their taste by denouncing anything, but not really state what they truly like.
So I've undertook to not denounce things in matters of taste, but simply stick by what i like, for whatever reason, regardless of popular opinon.
Oh, and the old german adage:
"Das ist euer Bier" (roughly, that's your problem).

The unachievable ideas are as necessary to progression as the practical ones.

"This stolen joke proves I have a sense of humour!"
"This tired old proverb proves I am profound"
"This hyperlink to someone who doesn't know me proves I am popular!"

Nothing like a bandwagon.

Except maybe irony.

Urban wisdom is not actual wisdom. It's more like the seemingly philosophical statements that sometimes leak out of my strange mind through my mouth, or in the case of message boards, my hands.

To bring forth the courage from within you must be willing to do what is right in your heart. Time is infinite and destiny is indestructible and unavoidable. Death should not be mourned as it is the discovery of peace.
These are my own.

Fatalist! unclean... unclean...

Everything ebbs and flows in an eternal rhythm, a slow waxing and waning without beginning or end. The universe has a heartbeat, you might say. And sometimes, if you can detach yourself from the world just enough to stop listening with your ears and start listening with your soul, you can hear it.
The Way is everlasting, perfect, and inexorable; what we call reality is temporal, flawed, and malleable. The wise person chooses to float like a piece of driftwood in the tide, rather than frantically struggling against it.

Bubbles, tricks of light, ripples -- that's all it is. That's all any of it is. So why bother? Shape the world into what you want and do what you will.

He who sleeps in gets more sleep

He who gambles losses some money and wins some back

A dollar earned is a dollar spent

He who doesn't talk, needs not to shut up

He who frowns gets more of a work out than he who smiles

He who cheats does better in the short run

He who falls out of a plane without a parachute gets there faster

I do not believe there is a law of moral balance (perhaps karma) at work in the universe. The wicked will prosper unless we--as opposed to abstract universal forces--do something about it. Why not be wicked and prosper? Why not indeed, though I also feel I have to live up to my own personal standards or I will lose any sense of meaning or identity.
