6-word memoirs

In honor of the 6-word memoir trend (thank you, Ernest Heminway for your powerful: for sale, baby shoes, never used), I have dabbled with these for myself...

Glass half full, cracked but functional.
Pen to paper is my oxygen.
To love is everything to me.
Apathy only abated by enthusiastic innovation.
Fame matters only to get read.

If you try this and come up with some really powerful ones, share!!

Loren's daughter. Bill's wife. Jason's mom.
Excuse me? Think fast-back track.
If I die-you're in charge!
