    Quite simply; in my opinion it is this: "Never be in a hurry."

    My father taught me to "never put off to tomorrow what you could do today."

    He then added that "the tomorrow you are waiting for will soon be the day you were talking about yesterday."

    In today's terminology that would translate to "no goofing off." My father, who did not finish high school because of the Great Depression, had a certain eloquence that is hard to find sometimes.

    Advice my children to treat everyone with kindness and offer help whenever possible.

    Up till now, they are still doing so and had helped many of their classmates in coping with studies and getting good results. I am happy for them.

    Duck!!!!! and of course I did. Next, it was "mind you own business" and finally: "Never do a half a--- job", a quote of my father.

    It's better to regret the things you do than the things you don't do.

    I was told to always pay off my credit card. I was told not to buy more than I had money to pay for. I've received lots of good advice, but being wise with money is definitely at the top of my list.

    The best and most important piece of advice I ever got was to go to college and get an education. I've never regretted following that advice.

    Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

    Do not judge book by its cover (aka Look at the big picture first)

    When I am a boy, while going to school...
    when I am youth,  while going to college..
    when I am man,     while going to work...
    My mother used to tell me" my son, take care, in your way"
    She is no more now. Even then whenever I am going out, even today,I am  hearing her calm sound.."son...."
    These is the most important advice I have ever heard.
