Have some lemonade


Sometimes you just have to make the best of a bad situation.

Life gives you lemons, have some lemonade.

Carpe diem

In Horace, the phrase is part of the longer Carpe diem quam minime credula postero – "Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future", and the ode says that the future is unknowable, and that instead one should scale back one’s hopes to a brief future, and drink one’s wine. Compare with the Biblical "eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die", a conflation, with emphasis on making the most of current opportunities because life is short and time is fleeting – an existential caution.
