: : okay, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That is like an old saying, but what does it exactly mean? I think it means that if life gives you something sour turn it sweet? What do you think?

: To me, it means, make the best of what you're given. It has similarities to phrases such as "play the cards you're dealt" and to a certain extent "every cloud has a silver lining".

Look what qualifies as an old saying these days.
