If you had to pick a motto or catchphrase to describe your outlook on life, what would it be and why?
I normally go with: "There's always Roome for improvement".
First and foremost it's a play on words with my surname.
Secondly, I love learning new things and believe people can always improve as human beings, no matter what their age, how intelligent they are or what their background is. I believe you can always push yourself further than you've gone before, it's just mind over matter most of the time.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (American poet and essayist) has some great quotes which describe my outlook on life - or what I'd like my outlook to be like, anyway! Here are some of my favourites:
- "Nobody can bring you peace but yourself."
- "Every artist was first an amateur."
- "A man is what he thinks about all day long."
These quotes suggest that it's your outlook on life that's important, and by changing your outlook you have the power to change your situation for the better.
I don't really live by mottos or catchphrases — I don't really see the need, although it can be nice to look at inspirational quotes now and again!
