Best advice came in the form of a saying: “Money talks, Wealth whispers”.

What is/was the best advice your mom gave you?
"If you want it, you figure out how to pay for it. I'm not buying that for you." That started when I was about 10.

The only thing you truly own is the knowledge you've gained over the years. It can never be taken from you.

I can still hear my father telling me, "The only thing that can't ever be taken from you is experience and education."

He played both roles as mom and dad growing up. It's sad that I miss him on mothers day and my mother never even crosses my mind.

As for motherly advice. The one thing that I remember my mother telling me as a child......"Please put that gun down."

Thanks mom!

-teachers (other adults) can be stupid or wrong; don't be afraid to stand up to them.

-everybody should leave home and live on their own at 18.

-before you get bent out of shape over something, ask yourself if you think you will still care about it 5 years from now.
