What's the best (serious, or even humorous) philosophical (or
otherwise) advice that your father really gave and / or still gives
you, about living
and life in general.

Not sure exactly who it said it, but seems particularly
useful these days:
"Don't believe everything you hear."
Some good advice my mother gave me:
"When without, improvise."

Interesting question..
Thanks,
Dare

It is a very good question...... but I don't want to get boring....
my father gave me a lot of incredible advice, full of wisdom,
just a pity I didn't follow it more !

Take responsibility for your own actions.

My dad told me, "If you don't bend over,
you can't get fucked"
