1. "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line"
    I know that this is just the concept of a hypotenuse but my father said it to me once long before I knew about Pythagoras and it taught me to always cut corners and walk through lawns
  2. "you need to calm down"
    more so my catchphrase than a motto, but I think everyone just needs to chill a lil bit
  3. "never cruel or cowardly. never give up. never give in."
    I think this is a brilliant quote from Dr. Who and I so very badly want it as a tattoo
