I saw a similar discussion on another forum (acoustic guitar forum) and thought it was a great one. So...what's the best piece of advice you've ever received?

I'll start:

Always do the right thing, even if it is not the popular thing.

One day at a time.

Never spend more than you have.

Quality over quantity.

If your outgo exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Be prepared.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Brew your own beer.

it's Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt

Everyone thinks they are right.

97% of the people do what they do because they think they are right not because they are trying to screw with you.

My sister was bi-polar and after years of thearapy she told me this & I was totaly struck by how true it is. Many people go around thinking that everyoe is purposely screwing up or messing with them but the truth is most people are doing what they think is right. Only 3% of the population are totaly trying to mess with the world.

18 minutes of pleasure isn't worth 18 years of payments.

Don't let your mouth write a check your butt can't cash.

Two great bits of sage advice from my father...

"You don't get to call in sick if it's self-inflicted"
and
"Do as I mean, not as i say."

And to stem off of the self-inflicted thing:

No pity for self-infliction (re:hangovers) :drunk:

It takes many nails to build a crib but only one screw to fill it.

If it smells like fish do what you wish, if it smells like cologne leave it alone.

You can pick your friends. And you can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose.

It is better to have a gun and not need it, then to need one and not have it.

Zombies dont die, you have to shoot them in the damn Head!

Practice your shooting, sweat and bleed in training, ammo and training time is cheap, your team/family lives are worth it.

If it shoots/attacks at you shot it, if its worth shooting shot it again ammo is cheap.


Have a plan, a back up plan, a back up to the back up, and be ready to improvise because no plan survives first contact with the enemy.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Not doing something will get you shot, doing something will often get you shot.

If you plan is working too well, you might be heading for an ambush.

Always keep your gas tank half full, you never know when you will have to run.

Always keep money and ammo on hand, they will always be worth more then you paid for them, and will be worth there weight in gold at times.

If you have the choice Die Standing up for something, its better then living on your knees.

If you don’t stand up for Anything, you will fall for everything.

Do what is right, no matter what it cost you.

Cheap tools are never worth the price you pay for them!

While Quality is great, often Quantity has a Quality all its own.

Remember that this was a Nation of Riflemen, and that keep China and Russia out of the US in the 60’s and 70s. I still don’t understand why we are giving that up.

Never live east of the Mississippi, when the war comes everything east of it will burn, and never live where you cant get/grown your own food and cant find your own water.

When seconds count the police are only minutes away.

The police are under no obligation to protect you from crime, just to investigate one.

Its better to be judged by 12, then carried by 6.

Be willing to be violent enough soon enough, half ass action will just get you killed.

Bring friends to a fight, mean friends, with guns, hell rifles, and if you can get it Air Support!

Never pick a fight with a man with just one gun, he might know how to use it.

Finish every fight you start, or they will get you.

There's always free cheese in a mousetrap.

There is no such thing as a free lunch.

If you think education is expensive try being stupid for a while.

If you think health care is expensive wait until its free.


(note from the movie ‘The Way Of The Gun’(great movie btw))
The only thing you can guess about a broken down old man is that he is a survivor.

We don't want your forgiveness. We won't make excuses. We're not gonna blame you, even if you are an accessory... But we will not except your natural order. We didn't come for absolution, we didn't ask to be redeemed. But isn't how it is, every goddamn time... Your prayers are always answered, in the order they're received.
