RE: The BEST Advice You've Ever Received
Best advice I've ever received: run!

I used to work for a guy who constantly told me not to stress over the things I can't control. It took many years before I could really do that, but it's really good advice.

I've come up with my own mantra that I say to my sons a lot: very often in life, the hardest thing to do is the right thing. You'd be amazed at how often that is true.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost

My mother impressed upon me that it is better to be know how to find the answer than to think I know the answer.

It has kept me from saying some really stupid shit.

Invisible, undetectable results don’t count

"Don't piss into the wind."

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff.
