My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE. I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.

This is hilarious: I call it a mother's lessons for life but you will need a sense of humour to understand it - British, American or otherwise!
You can revise the different ways for giving advice in English and expressing obligation.

Wherever you live, mother's lessons are the same...
Thanks of this statement, I've gotten understand the meaning of almost all the sentences; because the vocabulary (in some cases) was unknown for me.

This statement reminds me of the advices that my mother is giving me, I don´t know what I'd be without them..

It's not easy to understand but I'm glad you have made the effort.

Yes, they also say "great minds think alike".

“Listening to parents' advice is sort of like watching commercials. You know what's coming, you've heard it all before, it's a big bore, but you listen anyway” (source unknown). I don't expect this is much consolation, Ana, but there you go.

This statement remind me of my childhood when my mom gave me advice and now I am the mother who gives her children advice.Thus generation after generation is shown the circle of life.
