    From my grandpa: Without love you're like a blind hog on a cement pasture.

    From my grandma: If things are neat, people assume they are clean.
    Get your bluff in with your kids when they are little.
    When your feet hurt, you hurt all over. (Buy decent shoes.)

    From my mom: If you are too strict on your kids, they will go wild when the get older.
    It's better to be the one helping than the one needing the help.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    As for the story behind this - the wounds are still fresh. I don't care if he never comes back; because if he does, the flames of my anguish will consume him, and I don't want things to come to that.
    Aww... I learned that one the hard way too. Thanks for sharing!

    Interesting, that philosophy actually reminds me a lot of Epictetus and the Stoics. They felt that if you looked at life the right way (with your reason), you could even handle the death of your child with grace and wisdom.

    I love adorably folksy wisdom! This is really cute and yet manages to be true.

    This is nitty gritty stuff, love it! That shoe one, is so damn old school.

    I think those are good too, I especially agree with that first one. Mind you, being too lax will probably make them act out too. It's tough to find the balance (not that I have kids, but you know, sometimes I read parenting books in case I impregnate a crazy lady).

    I also think it's interesting that you shared what your elders have taught you, rather than saying what you've learned per se. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just most people like to talk about what they themselves think. Very 9ish of you, methinks

    You don't only live once, you live every day. However, you only die once.

    Have some of my favorite Gandhi quotes/teachings:

    1.)"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony."

    2.)"A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave."

    3.)"If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide."

    4.)"Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment."

    It’s not really a pearl, more of a slightly shiny stone. I meant to put this in a thread that was asking about it; but I completely forgot about it. It has to do with self-delusion and its innately fragile state. The nature of self-delusion is that it requires an almost closed system; where in all new information has to be filtered. This is a fatal flaw, if either a singular strong adverse reaction or a continuous stream of adverse reactions happens it will ultimately break the delusion. So while you might not be any happier striped of self-delusion, you will be infinitely stronger standing firm where the delusional will falter, and picking up the pieces from such a shattering is a horrible experience. I will also add that striped of delusion leaves you with a sense of serenity as though you stand on solid ground able to weather any storm.

    From my mom:

    You've got a 'no', but a 'yes' you can get - literal translation from Dutch, meaning 'don't be afraid to ask for what you want and potentially change that no into a yes - people just might surprise ya.'

    A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors
