A woman I used to work with gave me these two bits of advice when I was going through a rough patch in my life:<br><br>"Be happy with what you have, and accept what you don't, and it'll be easier to get what you want."<br><br>"What you seek will find you when you stop looking for it so hard."<br><br><br>

Most advice is worth exactly what I pay for it.<br><br>That said, I remember when I first start working bars, something like ~ If you hear a drunk holler, “Hey, y’all, watch this!" cut him off and stay out of his way, 'cause that's probably the last thing he'll ever say.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it. Really.</font color=blue><br><br>
_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
At my last job I found myself in a position to defend the character of one of the owner's wives to an employee of which I was particularly fond. I told her, "Debbie is really very nice once you get to know her!"<br><br>The response to this perfectly reasonable comment floored me:<br><br>"I don't want to know someone that you have to 'get to know'.<br><br>Wow... There is real wisdom there. I rather doubt that this is the most important advise ever given me, but it struck me as wise and creative.<br><br>

My mom told me (when I was in college) "Never be afraid of intelligent women."<br><br>My teaching mentor during my first year when I vowed everyday that I would never teach again told me "You can outlast the bastards."<br><br>These are two bits of advice I got from people in my life when I needed advice and are both pieces of advice I pass on to others.<br><br>Now, if you want a list of aphorisms or astute observations from literature or music lyrics, I can provide a whole different (and longer) list but to answer your question in terms of specific adivce given me by real people, I will go with those two, mindful that there are other examples that do not spring to mind so quickly.<br><br>
