Wear clean underwear. You never know who is going to see them.

And the best piece of advice that I have not followed is marry a Teacher. She will make you do it over and over again until you get it right.
If what you are about to do/say to her, would piss you off if someone else were doing/saying it to MY daughter/mother/sister/wife, then don't.
My mom was able to teach me to think about situations from the other persons point of view. Its stopped me from going off on more than a few knuckleheads in the past.
Life is like a sh** sandwich, some days you take bigger bites than others.---SGM T.L. Gunter
It's really pessimistic but when you are having one of those days it makes you laugh

It's harder to wake up every day and find something to be happy about than it is to wake up every day and find something to be sad about.--- My wife (this mentality has helped me through some really tough times)
When I was clinically depressed, I got this piece of advice from a counselor. Perhaps the only useful thing I got from counseling... but it was good. "I know you don't feel like getting up and going to work. But you gotta." So I did.
The best advice I have ever been given was given to me by my Mom, Fmaily, and my current boss. Manners as simple as please and thank you go along way. As a child i was taught these at the table and if i was given anything. we all know the rules to this its just applying them to everyday things.

My boss has given me the most insight on this. If you ever want an employee to do something for you and not slack off use your manners. As time went on i have realized that it apply to every situation in the work place. For example: "hey Jo would you mind getting that for me?" as nice as this would you mind sounds 1up this sentence with a please and a thanks: "hey Jo would you mind getting that for me please? Thanks" and thank them when they actually get the item you requested. Since then I have taken over my bosses position and he went to higher management but, Because of his kind words and advice I have headed my team works incredibly well together.

So give it a try yourself in the work place or at home you will be happy you did.
"quitting guarantees failure"

Oddly, the most useful to me is: "when in doubt, toss a grenade" In the Army it meant a real grenade, but in the civilian world it can mean an information bomb, or cashing in on a favor.....
This one from my mom.

You shouldn't do anything that you can't tell others about.
Can't say it's as much advice as it is just a thought to mull for a while.

My friend's dad came to me as he was leaving my wedding. We talked briefly, and he told me that he wanted to make a toast to my wife and I but didn't get a chance to, but he left the thought with me anyways.

"As you go through your marriage, I pray that this day is the day where you love each other the least, and that your love for each other only grows as the days and years pass."
good advice there Cody. I would add (from personal experience) to never let an elephant seal get you in a half-nelson.
I believe my father told me this: 'please and thank you will get you a long way in this world.'
two things.
This I've said before "There are two things I'm sure of. One, There's a God. Two, I'm not him." Dennis Houge

This from my wife the social worker "I'm not crazy enough to think I can change the world, I am however, crazy enough to try."
