    Hmm, good question. Clean from top to bottom? Mind your manners? There’s plenty of fishes in the sea? You can count your true friends on the fingers of one hand? You catch more flies with honey? Beauty is only skin-deep? Never be a man’s doormat? The people you hang with will forget / forsake you, but you have to look at yourself in the mirror forever?

    I couldn’t have answered this until recently. My mom told me, you have to do what’s right for your family and not worry about what people think.

  5. Oy, this is a hard question. I think that most of the advice that my mother has given me hasn’t been memorable in the sense of being quotable. But when I look at the way she’s raised me and the way I’ve turned out, I see endlessly her influences on me and the way we think alike about things. So while I can’t quote one single piece that has stuck with me as a mantra, I can definitely say that my mom has always been there to listen and help me make my own decisions.
