Let's face it; life can be tough sometimes. When the light at the end of the tunnel grows dim, adages can help brighten it again!
Here are a few of my favorites:

Mind over matter; if I don't mind,it doesn't matter.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

Never take life too seriously; none of us are going to get out of it alive.

Today is the tomorrow I worried about yesterday.

The height of your joy cannot exceed the depth of your sorrow.

And an all-time favorite,

A Persian Proverb:

He who knows not,
And knows not that he knows not, Is a fool - shun him.

He who knows not,
And knows that he knows not,
Is a child - teach him.

He who knows,
And knows not that he knows,
Is asleep - wake him.

He who knows,
And knows that he knows,
Is wise - follow him.

I would love to hear some of your favorite adages!

Never judge another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes.

Then you can say whatever you want, because he's a mile away and has no shoes.

Never judge a book by its cover
And,
Let sleeping dogs lie.

Follow those 2 and you wont go far wrong.

give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

'You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink'
You can give a person a chance, but you can't make him or her take it.

'The grass is always greener on the other side'
You always think that other peoples lives are better than yours.

'It was the last straw that broke the camel's back'
'Eyes are bigger than your belly'

And

Burn the candle at both ends

Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others.

It just seems appropriate on so many occasions.

I had never heard that one; it's a keeper!
Another version I DID hear:
Some people talk because they have something to say; others, because they have to say something.

There's no handprint so small that it doesn't leave a mark on the world.

Pray to God but row for shore.

The only people that care about tattooed people are people without tattoos.

My house. My rules.

A true friend is someone who walks in on you when the rest of the world walks out.

Good ones!
I have a different version of the first one:

Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish, and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

A closed mouth gathers no feet.

A friend in need is a pain in the ass.

Anyone who doesn't think there are two sides to an argument is probably in one.

Life isn't like a box of chocolates...it's more like a jar of jalapeños. What you do today might burn your ass tomorrow.

A few that I find quite true.

If you don't work, you don't eat.

He who increases knowledge, increases sorrow.

That which doesn't kill you, usually requires stitches.

I LOVE those! It brought to mind a toast I'm fond of:

Here's to you, And here's to me
In hopes that we
Don't disagree

But if by chance
We disagree,
To hell with you,
And here's to me!

As a former US Marine I have to add this one:

"A sucking chest wound is natures way of telling you that you've been ambushed."

My son is always saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger", so I'll have to spring your last one on him!

Oh, my; thank you for sharing - but the light at the end of the tunnel just dimmed a bit!

Judge others by yourself and you will rarely be mistaken.
