Simple enough question right? I like mottos. I love the joke from “The Rocky  and Bullwinkle Show” when Bullwinkle is asked. “What’s a motto?” He replies “Nothing, what’s a motto with you?” I know corny but I like it.

For our purposes a motto is: the guiding principle, of a person, organization or city.  So my favorite motto  is “Do only good”. Did I steal this motto from Google? Yes and no. Oh the dichotomy!! I liked Googles unofficial motto which is “Do no Evil” but I didn’t think a motto should be a what not to do for a person. For a corporation this is an ingenious idea. Because a corporations first goal is to provide a product and post a profit, so having that as the foundation a motto that states what not to do makes perfect sense and doing no evil is well good (lol).

A person is not a corporation a person is born and lives but lives are lived in so many different ways that I felt a better motto for me would be what to do instead of what not to do. Doing good is well good.

Is it simple? Yes, but most of the best things are simple.

Simplicity in character, in manners, in style; in all things the supreme excellence is simplicity.”
