The BEST Advice You've Ever Received
"When you start a new job, young man [i was young, then], the first people to get on your side are the Secretaries and the Security Guards."
--- said by some old guy when I started temping at 16.

"You've been born with the two biggest advantages in life ... you are male and you are white. Never abuse that advantage."
--- my dad, when I was 7.

"Look it up."
--- both my parents. I always assumed they didn't know the answers to the questions I was asking. Now, I get and appreciate what they were doing.

"If someone tries to set you on fire, run!" - My dad's advice to me on my first day of school.

Not a joke either, he really said that. Real confidence boost that.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I see what you did there Tongue

Off the top of my head.. "Always assume other people on the road can't see you" - my dad

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

"Only take half of one, even though they're small."

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

When I was first starting out as an auto mechanic, a wise veteran wrench told me to always look for a simple solution to why a car is not running.
This is great advice for anything.

At a steel mill...if you see a person collapse in a confined space, never go in to help them, call rescue.
