"learn to enjoy losing". Hunter

I live by that mantra to the extreme now for over a year and can only tell you people: it works wonders.
A little bit of self irony has to be envolved. Being able to laugh about yourself was quite useful, too.

And then, boom, life doesn`t seem to suck as much! I love it instead.

Don`t know if a classic drinker but it should fit here:
"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. 'Much obliged', said he, pushing the plate aside, 'I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills'."
- Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
