What's the best quote your Grandmother gave you?

I have a lot of great quotes I remember from my Grandmother. The one I've been thinking of a lot lately as I see people complaining of not having anything to do is 'Smart people never get bored.' I took it as a challenge as a child and internalized it. I can't imaging being bored in the world I live in.

Just want to preface this with how truly awful my grandmother was, she was the worst person I have ever known. That being said she was 99 when she died and actually pretty healthy until the last year or so of her life. Heres her quote:

Once you stop moving you might as well lie down and die.

Rough but true.

My grandmother said something similar.
"Life is full of struggle and when you stop struggling, you die."

I always remember my grandmother saying If you love to read, you will never be bored.

I think this is so true. Im 58, and I know Ill never live long enough to read all the books I would like to read. Im happy to say Amy daughter is a book lover, too, and were doing our best to instill a love of books in my grandson.

No one can ever steal/take away your education; get as much as you can
And for me, that has kept my life interesting. Whether I read a book, learn to sew, try a new recipe, engage in conversation, or actually take a course in a particular subject...I am always learning.
