Two, both from my father:

1. "You are in your 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's much longer than you are in your teens and twenties. Put in the work when you are young and reap the benefits for the rest of your life"

and

2. "If you're going to take the class, you might as well get the A"

"Get the sand out of your vagina" seems to have some traction around my parts.

#2 is similar to what one of my high school teachers once told us:

My Dad used to say, "Out of sight, out of mind", if I was about to put wallet or keys out in the open.  If he saw some hip-hop rappers, he'd say, "they should save us all alot of time and send'em to jail now".
