    I wanted to know about wise advice given to you from other women[mothers,grandmothers,aunts,friends,teachers etc.]that you have found to work for you...it doesn't necessarily have to be a quote.

    One that i like and feel is right on is,

    'A man will go as far as you let him'

    What do you ladies think about this quote...and what are some of your favorites?

    • If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning "Good morning" at total strangers.
