I wasn't born yesterday. I know that the world is a harsh and cruel place. Only the strong survive.

"I wasn't born yesterday." is used mostly as a sarcastic bitter expression since stating such an obvious fact usually expresses strong disapproval with the thoughts/words of the other person. At the same time, it mocks the other person since the fact of "not being born yesterday" is obvious. This expression can be used in a "playful" way around certain people or it can be rude and mocking. No matter it's intent it always is sarcastic in nature and therefore, I highly wouldn't recommend it's usage.
