One of my all-time favorites came from my maternal grandfather, "Take it easy; make it nice."

Very cool.

One of my favourites:

"Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from."

I've collected quite a few; here are some of my favorites:

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs -- jolted by every pebble in the road.

- Henry Ward Beecher
===========================
To me, boxing is like ballet, except there's no dancing, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other.

- Cary Collett
===========================
I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is; I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.

- Rebecca West, 1913
===========================
The trick is to keep an open mind, without it being so open that your brain falls out.

- Camilla Cracchiolo
===========================
Good judgement comes from experience; and experience, well, that comes from bad judgement.

- Unknown
===========================
One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important.

- Bertrand Russell

Several:
1. "If you're in a hole, quit DIGGING!"

2. "Time wounds all heels"

3. "If you act like a doormat, people are going to wipe their feet on you" (a fav quote of advice columnist, Ann Landers)

4. Yesterday's winds don't sail today's ships"(in reference to bragging about past deeds or the familiar "When I was your age we................" My daughter's fav
