Around the World in 80 Shop Windows

On the back of a T-shirt in Gdansk, Poland

While travelling around the world, I have occasionally come across absolute gems of positive thinking or hilarious sayings being displayed in shop windows. The challenge is to find 80 such gems and collect them on this page.

The rules:
1. The message must be positive.
2. The message must not be racist, sexist or any other offensive '... ist.'
3. There is to be no more than one message from each country or city.
4. I can break rule 3 any time I feel like it.
