    Nah, seriously...I think this was quite good:

    "When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us."

    So basically, don't waste your time on the past.
    I know a lot of people who I would like to drill this message into.

    .. I mean, offer encouraging support to via this piece of advice.

    Don't suck at sucking! It is a life or death situation.

    I've been adding "in bed" to most of these pieces of advice in my head. Some of them are great

    Esp. Whole-ass one thing. Don't suck at sucking. What you get out of it depends on what you put in. Good stuff

    My ex's dad once said:

    'I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter leave you now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.'

    So I dumped her.
