What is the best advice you have ever received?

“Imagine life is like a winding river and you’re floating in an inner tube. Sometimes you need to put both oars into the water and steer courageously against the current. However, sometimes you should bring the oars up out of the water, and let the river take you on an unexpected journey of surprises and delights, with the knowledge that we will all end up at the same mouth of the river.”
