From my Grandfather...

"If you can't pay cash, you can't afford it"...(My credit card debt is, was and always will be ZERO...)

"Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without"...(he grew up in the Great Depression and his frugality stayed with him, and me too as I have some t-shirts that are 20 years old...)

"Someone who is prepared for trouble is far more dangerous than someone who goes out looking for it"...(His advice to me when I thought I was a teenage badass, and he knew I wasn't...)

He smoked 2 packs a day of Camel filterless cigs for over 60 years, used to put them out between his fingers, (I tried that...once...) and did NOT die from lung cancer...had a bunch of other ailments but not the big C...They don't make people like that anymore...

From my Mom:

"Surround yourself with good people"

and

"Friends come and go but your family will always be your family."

Her moral there was to treat your family well and don't alienate them.

Dad's...Condoms are cheaper than diapers
When you get a job, go into debt but not over a car, buy a piece of land and build a house, then when you wake up and see the fish jumping down at the lake you get your sorry A** out of bed and go to work anyway.
Mom...I can't make you say that you are sorry...but I can make you sorry
Mine..if it has boobs or tires it will give you trouble
If it breaks it will be in two or more pieces
If it is stuck force it, if it breaks it needed fixing anyway

I tell my kid when I catch her picking her nose :
Keep doing that and you'll scratch your brain.
"How will that happen?"
You'll dig in too deep and scratch it. Use a Kleenex.
"What will happen if I scratch it?"
It'll make you stupid. The brain is real delicate.
-scared look on her face-
