Parafrase, not a quote:

Whenever u go out for a walk,

david, this isn't a quote thread, however, is your motto for life "Whenever u go out for a walk, always take your gun"?

Do no harm, but otherwise do whatever your heart desires.

@dyslexia,

I apologize if I broke the rules of your thread, Dys;
I didn t mean to.

The truth is:
I try to optimize my life by many dicta of wisdom,
not least among them: the Principles of War.

Quote:
david, . . .
is your motto for life
"Whenever u go out for a walk,
always take your gun"?

Perhaps a slightly broader application
is better: be prepared to control the situation
if the need arises. Whatayathink of that, Dys ?

@Diest TKO,
Here 's another one:

Don t risk more than u r willing to lose.

That was a corollary of: "trust no one";
I adopted that one at age 11.
I 've since amended that to: keep trusting people to a minimum,
and don 't risk more than u r willing to lose.

If you can't be an athlete, be an athletic supporter!
