“When life gives you lemons make lemonade.”
The phrase was coined by Hubbard but in fact Dale Carnegie was the first to use this phrase in his book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. His version states “If you have a lemon, make lemonade.”
This is a proverbial expression used to inspire optimism and promote a can-do attitude.
It appears to be a simple phrase. A lemon is a simply single, small thing but when you squeeze it and a little flavor to it, a wonderful, delicious something is made.
Parables can be argued against one another, as in “Look before you leap” vs “He who hesitates is lost.”
What would you say is your favorite go to parable?
