    What words of wisdom did your parents instill in you that surface just when you need them?

    What words/principles do you hope to instill in your children's hearts and minds?

    "You gotta eat a peck of dirt before you die."

    "Every dog has its day."

    "A man that can be stolen will be stolen." (That means not to bother with another woman's man.)

    "I'll rip off your leg and beat you with the bloody end of it!"

    "You have to suffer for beauty."

    "You may not be a princess, but they can't keep you from walking like one." (She was actually a little off on that one. )

    From my husbands grandmother:

    Well, you can just be mad till you get glad.

    From Mama:

    You can catch more flies with honey, than vinegar.

    The man is the head of the house, but the woman is the neck that turns the head! (I always liked that one a lot!)

    When you don't want to answer someone's question, just answer with a question such as "why do you ask?"...this one is lots of fun!

    Don't invest in someone more than they are willing to invest in you.

    Don't pick your nose and then wipe it on the church pew!

    From Daddy:

    Never sit with your back to the door.

    Never point a gun at someone unless your intention is to kill them, and treat ALL guns as if they are loaded.

    If you can't say something nice just be quiet.

    There is more than one way to skin a rabbit. (I don't like the sound of that, but it's true. It just means, don't limit yourself, or box yourself into something that isn't working for you. ).

    Here are some of mine:

    Feelings are not facts.

    It's just a thing (whenever I'd break/wreck something)

    Sex is a beautiful gift from God, don't make it dirty (at 12 when I was caught giving the finger to a kid in the neighborhood)

    When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

    Whenever you're scared, smile!

    What people say about you says a lot more about them than it does about you

    You can tell a lot about a person by how clean/dirty their bathroom is

    Kill em with kindness

    Take people at face value ...

    Actions speak louder than words

    Don't chase the boys

    Sometimes you just have to yell, "Sh*t!" LOL
