Everything I need to know in life I learned from watching Doctor Who...

It is a truth  universally acknowledged that a man in possession of  a blue box must be in want of a companion...

Everything I Need to Know in Life, I Learned from Watching Doctor Who:

- It's never too late to start over.
-If you're on your way to a gay, gypsy bat mitzvah for the disabled and you suddenly get a random thought? Follow through on it. The Third Reich really is rubbish and killing Hitler is a brilliant idea.
-When in doubt, put on your brainy specs. They'll help.
-The smallest, most insignificant moment can change the fate of the universe.
-Turn left.
-Always be yourself.
-Bananas are good, pears are nasty, and apples are rubbish.
-Waiting is worth it in the end.
-Don't trust mannequins, anything dressed as Father Christmas, or any type of Christmas decoration.
-Bowties are cool.
-Sometimes? Everybody lives.
-The Doctor lies.
-It's often the most ordinary looking people who make the biggest difference.
-Time is NOT the boss of you.
-Don't blink. Don't even think about it.
-Shakespeare was a flirt.
-Spending Christmas in London is a surefire way to meet the Doctor.
-A mop and a fez complete any outfit.
-Be excited about your fingers.
-Feel like everyone is staring at your back? Yeah, there's probably a time vortex there.
-Extermination is never the answer.
-Love is always more powerful than hate.
-Dying and turning into a Roman is VERY distracting.
-Good men don't need rules.
-Nothing can last forever.
-Spoilers are everywhere. Just look for them.
-Things are rarely what they seem.
-We don't understand babies because we're just not listening the right way.
-The universe is big. And vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things can happen and we call them miracles.
-You have control over who you will be.
-Keeping a journal will come in handy.
-Memory is more powerful than we know.
-When you disagree with the manual, throw it into a supernova.
-The universe is made of tiny stories.
-Time is not a straight line, it's a ball of wibbley wobbley timey wimey.
-There's loads of boring stuff. Like Sundays and Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons. But now and then there are Saturdays. Big temporal tipping points when anything's possible.
-Don't trust anyone who brings you coffee just to be nice. 
-They might shoot you, but you still have the moral high ground.
-If you wake up with a bunch of tick marks on your arm, and you can't remember what just happened? RUN. It means the Silence is near.
-Books are the greatest weapons in the world.
-Even when you try your hardest, sometimes you fail. You just have to dust off your trainers, straighten your bowtie and move on.
-Speaking of trainers, they go nicely with a pinstripe suit.
-Don't be afraid to try something ridiculous such as fish fingers and custard. It might be exactly what you're looking for.
-If you're going to die, do it looking like a Peruvian folk band.
-The Rotmeister isn't the greatest nickname.
-When in doubt, make up a word.
-Patience is for wimps.
-Being normal is overrated.
-Be sure your wedding dress has pockets. And that you always carry your cell phone.
-If you look hard enough, there are more wonders in the world than you could have ever dreamed of.
