    The full Hillel quote (unless there is another source?) could be applied to behavior on the roads, at red lights, etc. Or to bike advocacy.

    Im ain ani li, mi li? V'chesheani latzmi, ma ani? V'lo achshav, aimatai?

    If I will not be for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?

    You might want to be careful about having this motto in mind if someone approaches you in a bar.

    I suppose it depends on your motivation for being in that bar in the first place. Not that I would know anything about this, of course.

    When I was racing my motto was "start slow and taper off".

    Since my racing days are long gone... its not a joke anymore. More like words to live by.
