“Life is like a bowl of soup. You only get blown if you’re hot”

“Life is just a bowl of cherries” is an old saying. A soup version is:

“Life is like a bowl of soup. You only get blown if you are hot.”

The jocular saying has been printed on T-shirts and ecards. The saying possibly originated as a Demotivational poster. “Life is like a bowl of soup.. You only get blown if your hot” was cited on Twitter on May 31, 2011.
