Recently I heard on The Today Programme a BBC Radio 4 production an item where they read out how people had summarised their lives in six words.  I thought at the time how negative and down beat many of the submissions were. 

I get a regular newsletter from a guy here in Poole Chris Croft  and he agrees. Thank you Chris for the following list:

Maybe the negative ones just have more bite and are therefore make better quotes.

I am going to modify one of the above for my own and I don’t care if you think it corny:

My life, two words, faith hope

Please add your six word ‘life byte’
