Life Changing Advice

What are some of the life changing quotes you have heard through out your life. The one that meant the most to me is,

"Be like a truck driver. Back up before you unload."

Can't say how many times that advice has helped....

If you're gonna go paddling in uncertain waters, it's alway wise to wear wellies.

Re: Life Chaning Advice

A guy who plays snooker once told me,

"If your view of the pink is obscured by red you could always go for the cheeky brown".

I'm not much of a snooker player myself so I'm not sure what he meant.

Re: Life Chaning Advice

I've found the best advice comes from songs and old black men.
When in doubt, I whip it out, is a personal favorite though.

Re: Life Chaning Advice

Never judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes.









After that, think of him what you will cos you're a mile away and you've got his shoes.
