Lets face it. Life gets to us all at one point or another. So we all have some quote from somewhere, be it poetry, philosophy, something we heard in a movie or a game. What quotes help you get through the day?
I have a few.-
Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. - Samuel Clemens
If you make it idiot proof, they will make a better idiot - random shirt I once saw
Work sucks. Try to have some fun to make the day go by. - I HOPE that was me, but I know it wasn't. ( I know it's just stupid but people do agree with me on that).
Anyone else have some to share?

Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better. - Samuel Beckett
"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
It's one of my favorites as well.
"Oh what the heck, I'll laught anyway"
What do we say to Death? Not today! :)
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity... and I'm not sure about the universe" - Einstein
Also, from Wikipedia:
Several Murphy's law adages claim that idiot-proof systems cannot be made, for example "Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool" and "If you make something idiot-proof, someone will just make a better idiot." Along those lines, Douglas Adams wrote in Mostly Harmless, "a common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools".
I very like the first one!
I have a sticky note on my wall that says "overthinking kills your happiness", and I got it from a random steam profile. On the next two lines it says "I get knocked down, but I get up again", which I got from a Neil Cicierega remix. They remind me to not worry about living, the dumb things that I've done, and any possible dumb thing that I'm sure I'll end up doing in the future.
Will also leave these here :)
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
by Robert Frost
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having lots to do and not doing it.
I know it's a mess and it's half-taped together and it's old and busted - but it's mine. And you gotta make that work, right? You gotta make your own stuff work out.
-- Clint Barton (Matt Fraction)
"Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” -- Winston Churchill
“Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” -- Mark Twain
Mark Twain is, generally speaking, a good source for quotes on any subject matter, even the internet, which he preceded by about a century and a half:
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
There's this really cool quote from this article that says:
"Why prolong the mediocrity of your life by procrastinating when you could expedite your life’s exuberance simply by acting with a sense of urgency?"
Hakuna Matata :)
You know that means 'Up Yours' in Swahili, right?
Joke. Read it in a Mad Magazine years ago.
Lol, you got me.
Have a blue heart for being a good sport with that. :P
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. - Khalil Gibran
If this is the worst thing that happens to me today, I'm doing alright. - Me.
that pic is my motto to live by
Any day is a good day to die (Klingon proverb)
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Plurality should not be posited without necessity
'I'd Rather Be a Rising Ape Than a Fallen Angel'
Fuck this shit! - unknown wise guy
Do or do not. There is no try. - Yoda
No good deed goes unpunished. (yeah, I'm a glass half empty kinda person lol)
If there's another life at the end of this, you should work for it. And if there isn't, you should work to make this one count.
... My dad, I guess. Not sure if he ever got it from somewhere or someone. Nothing cheery, but it works. He's all about that hard work :P
