Anyone got any favourite sayings, memes or anything else that helps with moving ahead in difficult times?

My great grandpa used to say “ Never say Whoa in a mud hole “

I tell my kids, "It doesn't count unless it needs stitches or an X-ray." smile
Another family favorite is, "Whiners get bubkis!"

When you want to make a point, watch out for people with erasers.

If you're looking for me, I'll be in the corner of the round room.

The 1st thing you should do, when you find yourself in a hole, is stop digging. From someone trying to help me and my complicated head.

You never have to take another drink in your life, if you don't want to. From a lady who changed my life.

"Be nice." From one of the meanest people I have ever known,

WC said it and it goes well with the covid19.

We are not at the end or even the beginning of the end. But we might be at the end of the beginning.

I really like this one. It's a great basis of respect. I'm pretty sure my dad also taught me this.

Another one that I believe is attributable to Winston Churchill is:
"When you are going through he!!, Don't stop."

Don't take the counsel of your fears.

Never sit in a wicker chair if you're naked.

When I was a young boy, as young teenage boys do, we make the same mistakes over & over without learning from them. So instead of someone saying..."Don't make the same mistakes twice", that didn't sink in with me. Until someone told me to..."Stop jumpin' in the fire"!
