    As per the title, really

    My Dad gives me some good ones:

    'You've gotta keep chasing that tiger!' (Never give up)

    'Don't be the moth. Be the flame.'

    I should have followed this, if I did, I wouldn't have been propositioned by someone.

    I think in a Simpson's episode (been watching a lot of them recently :ninja:), Homer Simpson said: "You tried your best and failed miserably. The lesson is: never try."

    Nah, seriously...I think this was quite good:

    "When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us."

    So basically, don't waste your time on the past.
