What's the best piece of advice you ever received from your father?

Show(s): 

With Father's Day coming up, take a moment to think about all of the advice and words of wisdom that your father bestowed upon you over the years. Perhaps he dispensed some helpful words that still resonate today. Maybe they're even words that were passed down to him from his father.

...and THAT REMINDS ME ...The best piece of advice I remember from my father is to NEVER loan anyone money, ...but give it as a gift, because you will always regret and resent when you do not get repaid.  (A wise man my father is.)
(...and YES, That's my dad in the pic! HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DAD!)
