    What do you advise?

    Pretty much everybody who has lived ten or more years has at least one piece of good advice learned through hard experience.

    I thought that we could use this thread to inflict that advice on each other. That way we won't be pestering strangers in the street with it while we're drunk.

    So.... what good advice would you like to share? Advise away!

    (please try not to ramble on for twenty pages, and try not to begin with "You young kids today don't know nothin'...")
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Every person I meet has one chance with me. Screw up once, fine, you're human. But if you can't prove to me that you're not an a-hole, I don't need you around.
    Children love and want to be loved and they very much prefer the joy of accomplishment to the triumph of hateful failure. Do not mistake a child for his symptom.

    Things are not going to get better if you are just sitting on your hands waiting, if you want change you are going to have to work for it. You only have so much time on this world, make the most of it.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    Don't count your chickens until you at least know what a chicken is.

    This is something my best friend's grandpa always says when asked for advice. He's said it many times and now I'm going to,
    Never take a laxative and a sleeping pill at the same time.

    Don't stress the shit you can't do anything about until it hits you in the face.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
