Pearls of wisdom
 
I'm sure with so many all knowing people on here you must have all been given some very wise words along the way, so whats the best advice you've ever been given and did you listen to it?

Do one thing at a time, and do it as if your life depended on it.

I try to follow it, and succeed usually.

I don't care what you do or who you do it with, but If I have a mother come to this house telling me your son has made my daughter pregnant your dead.

My sex education from Dad, aged 12.

24 years on still remember it and still childless!

The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.

Never turn down sex, no man ever said on his deathbed that he wished he had less sex.

unless his death was caused by sex of course

'Trust no-one,then you have only yourself to blame if ever you are let down'.
I never liked the person who said that to me-well us- cos we were out for a night. I have to confess,sadly this has become my mantra.

Keep your mouth shut and your ears open....... (my Dad, who I still miss every day, nearly 34 years after his death)

The world doesn't owe you a living....... (ditto)

The trend is your friend.......... (that comes from trading in the financial markets, but there are plenty of other situations where it applies)

............. and my favourite 'proverb' or 'cliche': Empty vessels make the most noise............

Got that blasted at me from me Dad over 25 years ago after failing to get to work one morning after one to many pints .

Him being the gaffer didn't help me either , it's never left me after all this time and i've used it to a few boys over the years and it's had the same effect .

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate your mind on the present moment.


As much as I try and take this advice,I never can.
