The most valuable thing anyone ever said to me was " If you have a dream, go and get it, dont let anyone get in your way and always be yourself." To me this is the best piece of advice because it gave me confidence and hope that one day I can achieve what I want most and that "thing you want most", differs from person to person and with it it bringgs a different but true meaning. Another piece of life advice is to take everyday as it comes, live how you want to live and life is way too short to be wasted so just enjoy!

Made up one - not appropriate for the occasion so here's another known:

You are born with life's most important TALENT .LISTENING ... Develop your talent untill you miss nothing. The most important LESSON to learn for life is "HOW TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS". If you can follow directions can do anything! The most important SKILL to learn to READ ...Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power. Use that power to help others. And never forget... Practice does not make you perfect...only better.
The secret of life: (According to my grandmother)

Be happy, don't hurt anyone else when you could instead help them, and leave the world better than you found it.

We need more understanding of human nature, because the only real danger is man himself. Life is ten percent as we make it and ninety percent as we take it. The language of truth is unadorned and always simple. A word at the right time can work wonders for you and save the situation. With words you can build a system. All words are pegs to hangs ideas on. Kindness with words creates confidence. Kindness with thoughts creates profoundness. Kindness with giving creates love. Success is a journey, not a destination. The cause of what is caused is because of what has been caused. There are some who look inside their imagination to find facts. We all carry faults within. A discussion is an exchange of knowledge; an argument is an exchange of ignorance. Great minds discuss ideas, medium minds discuss events, and little mind discuss people. It is the mind that maketh good or ill, that maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor. Thought is the seed of action. You need nothing on the outside if you carry enough inside. Plan with meaning. Prepare with devotion. Proceed positively. Pursue with persistence. The heart has reasons that reason does not understand. The best things in life are free..
The rest of the guys came up with some good stuff, but consider this: When you can, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and, when you can't, do unto others before they do unto you. Unoriginal but true. [Cross out that last part, it's not in the Bible. But mark it out with a light pencil, so you won't lose sight of it!]
