"If at first you don't succeed, go to the pub and forget about it. It was probably a stupid idea in the first place"

"Being successful is about how good you feel when you get up every morning."

Or my Dad's favourite:

"You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose."

Well, you could pick your friend's nose, but it would have to be a very understanding and patient friend!
