When you really need some from-the-bottom-of-the-heart honest advice, you turn to your elders. They always have some life-hack wisdom up their sleeves. Knowing this, Britain’s sharp-tongued comedian Ricky Gervais asked his Twitter followers to text their pa’s and ma’s with a simple question and share the answers: “What’s the most important thing you learned in life?”

He’s already received lots of heartwarming, thought-provoking or simply hilarious life lessons from people all over the world after just a few days. As Ricky stated himself, #TextsWithGran might be his favorite hashtag of all time! The idea was born as a way to promote Gervais’ new TV show “Derek” about retirement home workers. Check out the best answers he’s received so far and share your own.
