Always be pessimistic; that way you can never be disappointed, only pleasantly surprised. ;)

My philosophy used to be "Life's a bitch, and then you die".
Now it's "Life's a bitch, but I like it anyway". ;)

I have many, as I don't like broad and vague, it's always too ... broad and vague. Here are some of my favs. Never "why," always "whys"... ie only followed the course with many coherent answers to "why?" or it's not wise. Whoever is maddest longest is the loser.... Because it means they are continuing to waste time and energy focusing on the "winner" (This one has successfully saved both myself and my son from our terrible, terrible tempers.) Answer to kids saying, "I don't love you anymore!" as all kids do... "Yeah, I know but you don't love me anyless either." You're only truly superior if you handle your supposed superiority with kindness and humor. Never take meds to make yourself more acceptable to others, only if it will make you more acceptable to yourself.

I've always liked that. Mine was worded a little differently, but with basically the same outcome -- "Aim low. That way, you'll always reach your goals." :D
