Thought this might work as a thread. It runs in the letter page of "The Daily Mail", so the following are stolen from there.

Nothing makes a lumpy mattress more comfortable than the ringing of an alarm clock.

Anger makes your mouth work faster than your mind.

Sorry I coul'nt come up with any of my own,I'm pretty tired. Anyone else ?

The oldest one in the book is: "There are no atheists in foxholes."

"Wise men talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something." - Plato (I guess that's older than the one about foxholes...)

"The graveyards are full of indispensable men." - Charles de Gaulle

"It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation." - Herman Melville

And one for Swedish-speaking readers: Bättre att gå på isen och ha det glatt än att gå i lera och sörja!
