My Daddy once told me... (pre-Father's Day parental wisdom thread) [More:]My Daddy once told me that basketball centers just stand around and oppress the shorter players.
My Daddy once told me that when you go to the hardware store for a replacement part, buy two of them, so that after you've broken the first one you'll know how to install the second one correctly.

My father once told me that I need to know how to put out an oil fire using nothing but newspaper and water.

My dad told me never to let myself get put into a situation where I'm not in control. He has also always led by example. He looks for the best in everyone and usually finds it. He is one of the two very best people I have ever known (my mom is the other one).

This is the talk my dad gave me about using drugs (never mentioning that it was about using drugs, but we both knew that's what he was talking about) right before I left for college:

In life, you're on a path. Sometimes, you may go down a different path for a while, and that's ok. Just make sure you never go so far down that side path that you lose sight of the main path and can't get back.

My dad told me to never wear brand names on my clothing, unless I was getting paid to advertise.

My Dad, after my mother found my tiny stash of porn..."Now, I don't care if you look at this stuff. Just don't let your mother find it."

Oddly, this was also my Dad, the night before I was to be married..."Your mother and I were happy when you got engaged. We were 'concerned' there for awhile."
(In my parents world, "concerned" should be read as "thought you might be queer".)

My father told me ...

Well, nothing. My father fucked off when I was very young after impregnating my Mother's best friend and I haven't seen him since.

I actually never knew my father to give advice. . .I did not know that was part of the deal.

Of course, I have more than compensated for that with my offspring.

Every day, Dad strove to eat from "all four food groups: caffeine, nicotine, salt, and grease."

My oh my, I miss him.

My father once told me: "Kick him in the shins. If that doesn't work, aim for the crotch."

My dad told me do my best. As long as I was clearly doing my best he would defend me against anything. They want you to pay for your health insurance? Hmmph! They should be happy to have you! (Dad was a lifelong military man. The real world was sometimes a mystery to him.) Miss you, Daddy.
