By default, that's usually just the output of the fortune(6) command
rather than a FreeBSD specific tip.

However, it's probably from a command run out of ${HOME}/.login (if
you're a tcsh(1) user) or ${HOME}/.profile or ${HOME}/.bash_login (if
you're a bash(1) user).  Other shells probably use one or other of
.login or .profile or else their own particular files.
