Girls, you are missing the point of these sayings. You made your bed has been explained, the one about making lemonade means turn a negative into a positive. As for you can't take it with you, I believe it was meant that we shouldn't place too much importance on money or material things. Time flies when you're having fun. Look how much time we spend on QB and how time flies. I think it was said as a sarcastic remark in the first place. You must all be younger ladies.
