The Best Advice I Ever Received

“Take the road less travelled” offered to me by a former professor I worked for in undergrad, and though I was never offered this bit of advice by anyone the phrase: “To thine own self be true.”

Both of these phrases have served me well in my travels and encounters; I have certainly taken the less beaten path for a professional career (Astrophysics). As for the second piece of advice, being true to myself forms the basis of my moral/honour system. For me that means being a decent, honest and upstanding individual even when there is no one around to witness any of my actions, and without the threat of punishment by some supernatural scopophiliac superintendent.
