    My Father, R.I.P., used to say that the only time it feels good to bang your head against the wall is when you stop.

    Wise words, from a wise man.
    Wish I had realized his wisdom earlier in my life...

    My father shared a piece of advice with me when I was starting out at work, decades before talk about work/life balance. His sage words were 'Always remember that work is simply a place to go during the day'.

    My dad said: Just because majority believes something to be true doesnt mean it is so.

    Nothing is true, everything is permitted

    Never settle...

    Possibly some of the worst advice depending on the situation!

    I would say much better advice would be to take a moment to assess a situation and decide whether backing down, retreating, giving up on something that's not working and re-focusing those efforts onto something else would serve you much better.

    'Never back down' and 'never give up' are only good advice in hindsight, for movies when someone was 'up against it', yet persevered and it worked out well for them against the odds. In reality when the odds are against you, you lose more often that you win. So in reality, knowing when to cut your losses, or even having the mental strength to accept losses and move on is a highly valuable still in life.

    Never take life too seriously for sometimes there is quare small utility in it. You cannot eat it or drink it or smoke it in your pipe, it does not keep the rain out and it is a poor armful in the dark if you strip it and take it to bed with you after a night’s drink when you are shivering with the red passion. It is a great mistake and a thing better done without, like bed jars and foreign bacon…it is a quare contraption, very dangerous, a certain death-trap.

    shoot them in the head & they would wiggle & squirm all over the place, and then just stop. Or you can slit their throat & watch their faces turn real white, you'll love all that blood..
