What is some wisdom shared with you that is worth sharing?

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Relationships: It's not how your feel about the other person; it's how you feel about yourself when you're with the other person.

Psychotics know that 2+2=5. Neurotics know that 2+2=4....but can't stand it!

Be kind. Everyone you meet is in a difficult struggle.

You can fly, but that cocoon will have to go.

Patience, patience, patience.

A nice person that's mean to the waitress isn't a nice person?

Don't f with people that make your food (or handle your healthcare).

....along the same lines.....you can tell a person's true character not by how he treats people above him but how he treats people below him........

That’s the quote. I prefer to use the term “possible indicator” of character.

I've got a great one, one that you hear and think to yourself "Oh that's complete BS!" and then later on you say "I'll be danged if he wasn't right on the money!", but I doubt it would be appreciated by many in this audience, so here's "Plan B":

"Everyone, no matter who, has something to teach and something to learn"

Where ever you live or where ever you work, become friends with the maintenance folks. (came up with that one myself)

Heard this in 2nd grade:

"When you're are approaching a cross walk and you see a car coming, what do you look for?"

(kids yell, 'THE CAR')

"NO, you look at the driver - more specific, you look at the driver's EYES" (woman in 60's big hair and piled on makeup points to her eyes with both hands).

That might have saved a life or two - it got through to my little brain.

Your family is the most important thing that you have, don't sacrifice them for your career.

I did follow that advice, so grateful for that!

Spend a few minutes in a busy public restroom and you will realize how many people don’t wash their hands after taking care of business.

Boot with extensions off, and rebuild the desktop.

It's from Confucius, I think.

Get a Roth IRA.

Buy stocks for the Roth that pay the highest dividends.

Opt into dividend-reinvestment on the utility stocks and REITs in your Roth IRA. They seldom decrease dividends which means you can get some good bargains automatically when the market tanks or stock prices go down with interest-rate changes.

Don't wish the time away - it goes faster the older you are.

Financial:
Don't take any wooden nickels. You can't spend 'em.
You can't spend more than you make.
Sometimes taking on debt, specifically to make or save money (buy a car or a house) makes sense.

Living:
Take time to stop and smell the roses.
You won't ever say, "Gee I wish I'd worked more late nights instead of spending time with the kids!"

Work:
You can't fix stupid, but you can engineer around it.
