20 Pieces Of Wisdom From Ferris Bueller's Day Off

The phrase "YOLO" may make your toes curl up deep into your sneakers, but it's hard to argue with the principle behind it.

The Hollywood prince of "you only live once" was one Ferris Bueller and although he would never lower himself to such an overused phrase, he imparted bags of advice during the 1986 coming-of-age classic. And he wasn't the only one.

Here we pay tribute to those words of wisdom which, irrelevant of the character who delivered them, were really frome the pen of the late great director, producer and writer John Hughes. You sir, are a legend.
