Here's one my mate usually quips up when moral is low or things are turning into an epic

> "Adventure: Absolute misery looked back upon with great fondness..."

Where he got it from i'm not to sure...
It gets a chuckle from me and it seems to work quite well

"I don't think I ever told you that whilst in the pursuit of a grand and wonderful dream, should you all of a sudden round a bend and see before you an enormous uncharted mountain with towering cliffs, jagged rockes, and seemingly impenetrable walls, just consider it a sign that your dream is considerably more worthwhile than you had previously imagined, and that you are exactly where you're supposed to be."

With the recent passing away of soccer (football) legend George Best, it is worth recalling a few of his quotes...

"I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered".

"In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol and it was the worst 20 minutes of my life".
