I was thinking of two that really resonated with me lately.

Life must be learned backwards, but lived forward.

And

Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, but empties today of its strength.

First rate WW2 Quote

This is probably the funniest quote from WW2. William Ash, the American pilot who flew Spitfires for the RAF and became a serial escaper when shot down, tried escaping many times. The one time he nearly succeeded was when he made it to the sea but was too weak to launch a stolen boat. He decided to ask for help and walked up to a crowd of men in a field. They replied,(I must do this in a German accent to get the full effect) "Vee vould luff to help you, but vee are Sherman soldiers, ant you are shtandink on our cabbages." Ash has just died at age 96 and was the inspiration for the Steve McQueen character in the Great Escape.
