    From my grandfather, in regard to getting married:
    "Choose the one you'll love, then love the one you chose. Always."

    Another, from my dad:
    "Not everyone likes the sound of your voice as much as you do."

    It is better to be thought of as a fool the to speak up and remove all doubt.

    If you are not a liberal when you are young you have no heart.
    If you are not a conservative when you are older you have no brain.

    There are a couple of things:

    Best Advice:

    1. In business, never discuss politics, sex, or religion. Never.
    2. Become a Vegan.
    3. Do things that make you feel good about yourself.
    4. Live mindfully and celebrate life.
    5. Don't try to eat anything larger than your head.

    From song lyrics:

    "Keep neat, stay clean
    Your Harmony likes to be seen
    Go West, get l**d
    And never join the Fire Brigade."

    --sixties song, the artist's name escapes me

    "This is the time of life that I am living
    And I'll face each day with a smile
    For the time that I've been given's such a little while
    And the things that I can do consist of more than smile
    Do you like the part you're playing?

    "This is the only thing that I am sure of:
    And that's all that lives is gonna die
    And there'll always be someone who's gonna wonder why
    And for every happy hello, there will be goodbye
    There'll be times for you to put yourself on...

    --Arthur Hill, The Love Group (about 1967)


    I may have screwed up the lyrics on that last one but you get the idea...




    Worst advice:


    Don't worry, it's not loaded (ha ha just joking).
