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?

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. Give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish.

One that has stuck with me for years is a quote from Nitro Circus movie (awesome btw), sadly dont remember the name of who said it.
They triedto do a stunt from movies - flip the car around sideways and land back on wheels. They didnt succeed and both guys who drove the car landed straight on the roof, which collapsed and both of them got sent to hospital to recover with serious injuries.
After the segment with crash they commented it and one of the directors ( I believe) said this :
"You know, when it goes bad, it goes
bad. There's nothing you can do about it.
When you fall down, you gotta get up
and brush the dust off and go for it again.
You can't quit."
Also from the movie that Travis Pastrana said, always cracks me up, remembered it from trailer - "You got a calf cramp ? You landed on your face and youve got a calf cramp ?"
And remember. It's not the fall that kills you, it's the ground.
Just as Jeremy Clarkson has stated : “Speed has never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you.”
The inscription on my kingsize coffee mug translated: "Keep smiling! You can't possibly kill all of them!"
No specific quotes really, sure there's some good ones I like but none I really hang onto. Music always helped me through the day though, I remember some specific songs that really made me feel like I belonged on days when I had no one to talk to and nothing could lift me up, especially in my late teens. Elton John's 'I'm Still Standing' had me walk out of school smiling, even though I had nothing to smile about that day.
