It is better to spend a little more than you want than a little less than you should.
This is so true! I have said several times, “I spent too much for it but it really does the job.” I have never said, “glad I went cheap with this piece of junk. It never works I am so happy.”
“Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.”
“Wow, as a parent I now have to think hard about what I ask of my daughter and what I hope for her. I guess my wife has it right, “We want you healthy, happy, and safe.”
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is NOTHING.
There is another much more direct and slightly UN-PC way of putting this. I think it has something to do with a pot.
Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.

In other words, challenge your own assumptions and leave the door open that you might be wrong. It does not hurt near as bad walking through it when it is open.
