My momma used to say...

I want to know what helpful advice your mom, dad, grandparent, whoever, used to (or still does) always say to you that has inspired you or helped you through a rough time or just plain makes you laugh.

my dad always told me, "If you can't listen, You will learn."

sometimes it seemed all I did was Learn. LOL

My mom used to say

"You can sleep when you're dead."

Needless to say I didnt get to sleep in much when I was younger.

No one ever said this to me, but I say it all the time to others:
You'd care less what people thought about you if you'd realize how seldom they did :)

-->You could do worse
than to be amazed

if you spend all your time caring what other people think of you you dont have the time to care about yourself

so true

School is for life but life isn't for school.

dad said when I frenitically tried to choose a career or got irritated with my upper secondary studies.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
