What’s the best piece(s) of advice you’ve ever received?

I’ll start. I have four, which, when taken together, pretty much sum up my entire approach to life.

    1. Expect the best, but prepare for the worst.

    2. Keep it in perspective; this too shall pass. (This is the one I have trouble with.)

    3. The graveyard is full of indispensable people. (Used by my paternal grandmother whenever we were getting “high and mighty.”)

    4. You never know what someone is going through. Be kind.

Your turn.
