Best enabling one liner?

Watches are completely irrational, unnecessary shiny toys , and nothing more. Yet we can always buy another one because we love them so much. Often the tipping point for a purchase is the enabling whispers of our fellow watch enthusiasts. 
A friend of mine is deliberating the purchase of a Porsche Design Chronograph 1, a stunning watch that he has not quite yet, but almost, committed to.

I sent him these uplifting words of encouragement…

”“Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”
William Shakespeare, Macbeth.
So stuff it! By the watch and enjoy it for the few meaningless days you have left (you are 52 after all).”

Maybe a bit down beat????

What’s the best enabling phrase or rationalisation you’ve heard that’s tipped you over the line?

When people ask me why I like watches so much I launch into soliloquies about how their little mechanical hearts will keep beating after I'm dead, and that's charming

This one I personally hate because I grew up in a dysfunctional house when it came to money and saw how their behavior put us in the poor house, but I heard this constantly said by my parents.  "Go Ahead You Deserve It".  They may have deserved it, but they couldn't afford it.  Enjoy the hobby but don't let it destroy your financial future.

Hope I didn't bring you all down.  lol.  My passion for almost 30 years is investing, and I can't help myself.

After calculating expenses for the month…”Yea, I think I can fit this watch in.“ Or another old favorite of mine: “I haven’t really spent anything in a while so…”
