The first one, I believe life is about trying to find yourself.  Many go their entire lives without trying to understand their deepest nature.  When it comes to myself, I feel that I am what I am.  I can't change it and neither can anyone else.

I'd also heard (and I don't have a proper source here, just, "I think it was in a discussion here at TC, maybe", so take this with a grain of salt) that "know thyself" indicated that one should know one's place in the world.  Avoid hubris, know your limitations as a human being, Icarus, Arachne, that kind of thing.

More general response now:

I think I'd go with those two Maxims as being pretty important to me too, although (if I can be the annoying sort of newbie for a moment) I'm really still exploring Hellenic ethics, so I can't comment with any kind of authority about them in a general sense.  I don't do a lot about them consciously, I suppose, but they're sort of rules that line up with the way I try to live my life anyway.  I think I have mixed success, but...  human, you know?  I do my best and try to improve on "my best" when I can.
