What lesson in life most sustains you?

I lived in a family of 13 in a time when there was little. My mother taught me, "waste not, want not". This has carried me through good and bad.

Never judge a book by its cover. Reminds me when I see people I think are different to just ease up and give them a chance rather than form opinions. Another is "you can't make someone a priority in your life if you are only an option in theirs".

Life is a series of challenges, how we face those challenges determines who we are.

Everything happens for a reason. Do on to others as you would have them do on to you. Always helps.

What ever you end up doing in life, and if your going to put your name on it, spell it right!
Also, the difference between the possible and impossible is merely a measure of mans determination.

Don't share ur those secrets with anyone which you want that person not tell anyone other, bcoz if u can't keep ur own secret then it will be foolish thing to think that someone other will keep it safe.

Have heard this as:" You won't be handed more than you can handle";
Just wish whoever/whatever doing the "handing" would stop assuming I'm so strong!

Well, I have multiple sayings:
"When life gives you lemons..." I might've misinterpreted this, but I think this means you need to know lemons (a bad situation) can turn into something good, like lemonade (something good can come out of it)
"Wait a little bit and stay still." My grandma used to say this. She told me and my brothers that we need to reflect sometimes and take life slower and enjoy it.
"All you need is a strong faith." This has run in my family for generations. It means you need to have hope that someone from above is watching you and guiding you. (I don't mean to offend anyone's beliefs.)

Never say anything about someone you wouldn't say to their face... it might just come back to bite you...Treat others like you would be treated...that smile or kind word could change a life, or even save one.... Keep your word... if you said you would, then you should.... your word is you... no matter how small a thing you said you would do..

love with your heart and soul,even if you get hurt it's not the end of the world.always do the best you possibly can.sometimes ya gotta let go and let God,because you don't have any power over anything but yourself.find happiness within yourself,and don't depend on anyone else to do it for you.i've had many trials to get through in life,and i've learned many things from them.

to never forget what you believe in and to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves. and to find refuge in the fact that if you believe in the lord, you will be rewarded with the greatest gift of all.
