Some quotes just stick with you... or at least to me. One of the stickiest: "Do the best you can, with what you have, where you are." - President Theodore Roosevelt.
Along those lines:
If someone gives you lemons, make lemonade. Sell it. Invest the money. Make millions... I bet you wish they gave you more lemons.
If someone makes you nuts, make peanut butter. Who doesn't like peanut butter aside those who are severely allergic to it? You can always trade it in for lemons.
Never look a gift horse in the mouth. It might really be a camel and it might spit on you.
Okay, that last one might not necessarily go with the others but it's sound advice, and who knows, it just might stick with you.
