On my mind lately is a great gem I got from the discussion forums that Dr. Deepak Chopra used to have, a poet there made the prayer:

"May I not be in the way of my art."

The best advice I have ever received was:
Every thing you say or do will in some way affect the future no matter how trivial it may seem, and you can never begin to understand its ripple.

A. H. Almaas told me not limit myself in describing the world or Spirit.

He said that many people think that God, the Universe, Spirit or Gaia cannot be explained.
In fact it can be explained because everything that exists is an explanation but only a part. There is always more to it. It never ends. It is quite funny when people write big books saying that Spirit cannot be talked about...

I think it must have been when I was bowling in a parent-child league and got a gutter-ball on my first shot (something I don't normally do). I stomped back to the other side of the alley, shouting 'IT'S NOT FAIR!" Before my father could tell me how much I was embarassing him, the woman that we were bowling against (who was with her son at the time) gently asked me "Who ever told you life was supposed to be fair?" Those words have resonated with me whenever I think I've been dealt an "unfair" hand, or situation.

The best advice I was given was by a total stranger when I was going through a tough time 3 years ago...

He told me " Life was not a sprint but a marathon"

At first I was thinking that didn't make any sense to me but now I know what his meaning is. Taking things day by day and having patience, not rushing things. Even though it has been a long 3 years things have gotten a lot better :).

Most fell in my memory quote, saying that even the longest journey begins with the first step. Whenever I have a lot to do this quote motivates me for further action.
