What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?

"It’s the quote I used for my yearbook blurb from my dad. He said, “All you have in this world is your name, once you prove yourself to be untrustworthy you will no longer matter to anyone”. I like this quote because it applies to everything that you do. All you have is your name, everything else is materialistic that doesn’t really matter at the end of the day. Trust and character is everything. If you go around lying to people, saying one thing but really meaning another; you’re going to be known as a liar. When people hear your name, first thing that is going to come to their mind is “oh she’s a liar”. I don’t want that for myself. I try to live my life following this."
