We’ve always grinned and taken our grannies’ words of advice, like “Listen to your heart,” “Be generous with kind words,” and “Choose a man with hands of gold,” with a grain of salt. However, when we grew up, it turned out that most of those pieces of advice were valid. They’re not as boring as we once thought and reflect the wisdom of past generations. However, people tend to understand this only with time.
The Bright Side authors recalled the advice of our grannies and decided to draw comics that can colorfully illustrate the well-known phrase, “Life is not all clear sailing in calm waters.”
1. “You can’t cheat your heart. Listen to it.”
2. “Look for a man with hands of gold.”

7. “Choose a generous partner.”
