    Smile slogans

    I wrote some slogans for school and I'm not sure whether they were correct or not.
    1. Don’t push. Don’t rush. Line up in a hush.
    2. The less litter on the floor, the more beautiful the campus is.
    3. Keeping Smiling, you’ll be more beautiful. Studying hard, you’ll be better. Staying healthy, you’ll feel greater.
    4. Fun to learn. Learn for fun.
    5. School is like our home. It’s our duty to keep it beautiful.
    6. One in trouble, others help.
    7. Love books. Enjoy reading. Taste life.
    8.Enjoy the moment of Creating. Live the life of fighting.
    9. Sow the behavior, reap a habit. Sow the habit, reap a personality. Sow the personality, reap a life.
    10. Sweet comes from speaking and walking gently, Danger comes from chasing and fighting noisily.
    11. Today, did you smile? Did you greet others? Did you behave with comity? Did you help others?
    12. Less litter, more beautiful.

    11. Would your audience know what "comity" is?
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    If you look at all of the statements, all of them start with an -ing word. However, I agree with you that all three would be better without the -ing.

    Perhaps. But it is clearly unclear.

    If so, it would beat any audience here.

    #1 sounds like a protest chant.
