That one's one of the Great Jack Handey's "deep thoughts", If I am not mistaken.

now a few I picked up:

"Prepare for the best, but do not fear the worst."
Toda Mariko (fictional, btw- she's in Shogun by Clavell).

"Only think of now. Tomorrow does not exist, there is only this moment. Please enjoy it to the best of your abilities."
Toda Mariko

"Those who cling to life die, and those who defy death live."
Uesugi Kenshin

"The wise win without a fight, while the ignorant fight so that they can win."
Sun Tzu

"The lady was right- good swords are kept in their sheaths. You'd best find yours."
From "Sanjuro"

"Pain is only a feeing that can be overcome by spirit or determination greater than the pain itself."
from the anime "Rurouni Kenshin".

and, finally:

"The Truth is in the mystery."
from "Rashomon".

I have plenty more, believe me- but I'm in a good mood, so I'll spare you the rest .

Kanpai,

-Nick
