One variant that I've enjoyed is "You've buttered your bread, now lie in it!"
Oh, my God! I thought my mother was the only one who said that.
Some other Mom-isms:
"At the end of every rainbow is a silver lining."
"He left his footprint across the face of time." (Ouch!)
"If you can't beat 'em, forget about it."
In the same vein, a client of my father's used to say: "No matter how you
twist and turn, it all comes out in the wash."
