What is the most important thing your father ever taught you, either explicitly or through example?

Just ruminating on beind a dad, and how to be a better one.
followup question: is there anything you learned from your father that is uniquely "father-ish" or are the lessons we learn from our parents largely independent of their gender? I'm not trolling or trying to whip up a cynicism-fueled storm of responses, or generate Paul Harvey moments, just curious about what people think about this .
