Best way to live life generally?

"Be yourself," "make your bed," "live and let live," "stop caring what people think," etc. I've heard a lot of sage wisdom, but what I find is that they don't work as well as people seem to think across contexts, so my question is what advise or sayings would you say are the most generally applicable and why?

Not exactly sure what wisdom is. Is it telling you what to do? Does one persons life experience match the requirements of another person? , Should any one give OR take advice knowing there is a mismatch of previous experience . Just give facts, ma'm . Facts are all. Anything which lowers anxiety is a good thing to say , whatever. All of the above quotes aim to do that. Whatever it is, collective wisdom is better than a single person's effort. Be careful what you say to yourself is my version.

Just be a good person with high ethics and morals and stick to them.
Do the right thing regardless of the consequences because you have to live with yourself the rest of your life.

Get out there and engage life. Don't sit on the sidelines. Get up off the couch and do something.
One of my favorite things to do is make music with others. Have played in a celtic band for the last 15 years that my wife and I, along with some friends started. In the last three months, have joined two different bands. Just do it.

The golden rule "do unto others as you'd have others do unto you" is so universal that it's even part of physics as per newton's 3rd "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction".

Never Say Never
The older I get the more I end up either doing or find myself more accepting of things I used to say I would Never do or believe.

Never take advice from a comment on an internet site or an Amazon review.

Best one liner I've ever been included upon

I think it depends entirely on who you are and what your idea of a good life is. When I was learning to drive, my instructor said" focus on where you're going and the mechanics will fall into place". I've always thought that was pretty good advice all around.

What works for one will not necessarily work for another. You do you and I do me works best for me. (IMHO)
