5. "Seize The Day"


seize the day \seez the dey\

To enjoy the present and not worry about the future; to live for the moment. To make the most of today by achieving fulfillment in a philosophical or spiritual sense. See: Newsies.

9. "It Is What It Is"


it is what it is \ˈit is (h)wət ˈit is\

The definition can mean many things, in this case: "whatever". Be warned, though: this expression is better than saying YOLO, but not by much.

10. "You Only Live Once"


you on·ly live once \ˈyü ˈōn-lēˈlivˈwən(t)s\

What YOLO actually stands for. I know the phrase is five whole syllables instead of two, but I strongly recommend saying this instead as to not look and/or sound like a fool.
