My favorite was (according to legend) the motto of a New England dairy:

Good as any, better than some.

Thanks for the shout out Michele! I usually have trouble with this sort of thing, but it was actually kind of fun (and maybe more revealing than I originally intended).

My favorite of the bunch is Betsy's. It tells you a lot in a 6 word reflection.

For more 6-word fun, check out:
1. The now in judging Freakonomics 6 Word United States Motto.
2. Wired's 6 word stories, of which my favorite is Alan Moore's "Machine. Unexpectedly, I’d invented a time" for its absolute cleverness.

Hi Michelle,

I totally love this blog and what a grand idea to collect 6 word memoirs! While not nearly as profound as some on this list (you all are awesome) I'll toss in a few more:
1. Follow your mind AND body wisdom.
2. When an opportunity knocks, say yes!
3. Be fearless, be forgiving, be fun.
And I learned this one from a former boss:
4. Ask for forgiveness, not for permission.

This is a unique extension of the "microblogging" concept of using brevity to encourage creativity and innovation....not to mention efficiency! ....I like it! :-)

One day, It'll all make sense
