To Thine Own Self Be True 1 by veraukoion To Thine Own Self Be True 1 by veraukoion
Someone left a comment on one of my pics that got me thinking about what my life saying and deviantART sig means to me. It was a good comment, so I am not ranting here.
This is, in fact, a credo. Look up that word if you want to know what it means- I'm not about to define it.

To me, this saying says, "You need to be true to yourself before all others. If you are not true to yourself, how can you be true to your family, wife or girlfriend, friends, your religion. If you lie to yourself about everything, how truthful are you to those around you? Lying gets you nowhere, and the truth shall set you free. Cliche's I know, but still true nonetheless."

With that said, this is my life saying. One of many things I run my life by. And by doing so, I have awesome friends, deviants and non-deviants, and a wonderful wife. Give it a try and see what I mean. To Thine Own Self Be True.

And I would like to thank William Shakespeare for giving that saying to us.

Hamlet, is it? I remember that. My personal quote is from Macbeth, it's at the bottom of this comment.

And people said I had a sense of humour because it's a pun.

"I dare do all that may become a MAN..."

Later.

I'll give you another one:
"Do not seek greatness. Seek truth, and you will gain both truth and greatness."
