a strong advice that sticks

In the darkest days of life someone once told me, “as the going gets tough, the tough gets going”. This stuck with me for a long time. As things get harder over this period, as decisions become harder to make, the only encouraging word that a pessimist could accept was the very line above. It probably has the same essence as “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” – but I never quite believed in that. Today as I woke from a dream, this line surfaced again.

It’ll be tough to start afresh, it’ll be tough to make a right choice, but soon the tough will get going.

Which saying / advice has stuck with you and helped you through your hardest times? Was it really because of the saying, or the messenger who shared these words with you?
