Can't say I have lots of good sayings from my folks as Dad (rest his soul) was a typical Irishman - alcohol was way more important than kids. I learned by watching Dad and vowing not to be like him. My confrontation with Dad came 2 years earlier than Jack's - I was 16 at the time. No hard feelings or regrets though and late in his life Dad gave up the booze and we actually had some decent conversations.

From Mom I learned that my middle name was to be used when I screwed up...

The one that still sticks with me...

Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky. But Crom is your god, Crom and he lives in the earth. Once, giants lived in the Earth, Benning. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Crom was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Benning. You must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts.
[Points to sword]
Benning's Father: This you can trust.

That rings a bell. My dad, unfortunately, still hasn't figured it out and he's almost seventy. At least his bulls**t led my brother and I to swear we'd never be the same way, and we're not. Disfunction sometimes teaches good lessons, albeit hard ones.

Here's another from my Dad:

"If you get that girl pregnant, so help me G*d" LOL

My mom when I was younger always told me.
"I'm to young to be a grandma, and you're to cute for jail, so don't do anything stupid".
My dad always says, laughing of course.
"Think about how bad, and how much of a pain in the ass you were, and your son's gonna be 10% worse"

I heard that one a lot!! We have different relationship, though. I'd never try it out of respect.

From Dad,
His favorite: "I'd rather have a stupid kid than a smart one that doesn't try." Yep, there was cause for that one.

"You're gonna make a good hand one day, if you don't make a foot first." Usually after I have done something simple he didn't want to do.

"You're so bright I have to call you son." Yet another of those I heard after I did something stupid.

"This'll make it run like a striped ass ape." Pretty much related to any performance upgrade we did to a car growing up.

"We can fix that." This meant WE were about to break something but I was going to get the blame.

"Now we have to worry about every dick in the world." Right after my little sister was born.

From Mom,
"Never live your life for anyone else."

Also from Mom a few years after that first one,
"You wanna keep that woman happy, learn how to lick p---y."

Yep, Mom left us for a 19 year-old girl when I was 14.

My grandfather was the one with the memorable quotes;

When speaking of a worthless person "He hasn't hit a lick in years"
or "That guy's a Zero with the rim rubbed off"
That something was likely stolen "It's hotter than a $2 pistol"
"I'll knock you to the ground and kick you for falling"
"I'll hit you so hard you'll wake up and find your self asleep"
"I'll knock you into the middle of next week"
When he got mad he had to run down the list of grandchildren in order till he got to the name of the one he was mad at "CraigMarkChrisNathanJosh!"
He had to attach additional identifiers to his sons-in-law to remember them (he had 5 daughters). My dad was Dale Long because he was 6'08". I have an uncle that was Jim Black for obvious reasons.
