Imagine there are only two phrases you can say to your child during your whole life. One is a quote, another one is your own. What phrases will you choose?

My choices are:

A quote: Who indeed is the happiest but the unhappiest and who the unhappiest but the happiest, and what is life but madness, and faith but foolishness, and hope but a staving off of the evil day, and love but vinegar in the wound. By Søren Kierkegaard.

My own: Don’t become a fan of anything but your opportunity in life to create.

That's hard. Without thinking much about it, I'd say... Quote: "The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." - Albert Einstein My own is something like: I'm telling you, there will be setbacks in your life. All you need to fight them is time and patience. Go your own pace and smile, no matter what others fool you. Don't worry, nobody here really knows what they're doing!

Quote: "Nobody dies a virgin, life fucks us all." - Kurt Cobain. My own words: "I know, you have a lot of questions. First of all, a virgin is a person who hasn't fucked anyone or hasn't been fucked. What is fucking? Well, son, you gotta find it by yourself. I'm limited of words."

Everything goes by, this too shall pass. Love generously, act with kindness, be honest with yourself, be brave in deeds and thoughts, and remember that no one owes you anything.

Wonderful question! The quote: „Be where you are; otherwise you will miss your life.“ My own: „Don’t let anyone tell you, that you can’t achieve anything. It’s the biggest lie ever. You can do anything you want. Just stay focused and joyful.“

Quote: It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. From me: Keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut. People don’t need to know everything you think. Smile. And then go your way.

Heh. Nice. Okay... Quote "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." My own "Never underestimate your opponent, and always assume they have the upper hand. Not to put you down, but so that you can prepare, that way, when he strikes against you, you won't be so surprised, and you would never be caught unaware."

For those wondering about my earlier comment, it was done sarcastically with the quote being a two word phrase involving voting for myself but not in sense of a presidential campaign, that was quoted from the maaaaany Sola spammers, and my own was a typical line about liking and subscribing said at the end of practically every youtube video ever. I am both glad and sad it got auto deleted, glad that it means that the vote spammers are being taken care of, and sad that nobody will be able to have a laugh at my comment.

Oh, and I'm surprised no-one caught this. It says there are only two phrases I can say, but there is more than one way to skin a cat. Or, in this case, more than one way to deliver a message. What about writing it to the child, telling someone else to deliver the message for me, using some sort of Morse code involving lengthened/emphasized syllables in the phrase, and normal syllables (one being the dahs, and the other being the dits.) Heck, we could both learn sign language and I will just sign everything else I want to tell him. Just one example.
