What would your mantra be?

Suppose you wanted to use a mantra, what would it be?

(A mantra is a sentence or phrase which you repeat to yourself, to calm yourself, bring you to a state or relaxation and balance, etc. Mantras are usually used for meditating)


Mine would probably "I'm not afraid"
I know it doesn't sound very calming, but if you knew what i was afraid of, you'd understand how it calms me

Om mani padme hum.
You know, to turn sentences you make up into mantras there's actually a systematic proccess (yantric or mantric magic) created by A. O. Spare, which has a great effectiviness

I'd probably have two, depening on what I was trying to calm myself down from.

1) "It is the time that you have wasted for your rose, that makes your rose so important." ---Antoine de St. Euxberry I know it's kinda long, but it's from a favourite book of mine (The Little Prince), and it seems to work.

2) Same as Anakin's: "I'm not afraid.."

3...

1.) Fugghedaboudit!

2.) And if a friend like you should make enemies, then they would become my enemies...

3.) I take care of my friends.

And like Snapman mentioned, "fuck" always adds a certain color to the lingo

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

~ Bene Gesserit Litany against fear.
Frank Herbert, Dune

Either that or (more likely):

"It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed,
the lips acquire stains,
the stains become a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion."

~ Mentat's Litany
