Why it's important: People love making up their own facts just to get the numbers (or results) they want. Don't trust the alternate facts, people!

3. On being a weasel: "Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It’s what separates us from the animals… except for the weasel."

4. On liars: "It takes two to lie. One to lie and one to listen."

Why it's important: Just like it takes two hands to clap, it takes two people to perpetuate a lie. 

5. On having a life: "What’s the point of going out? We’re just gonna wind up back here anyway."

Why it's important: There's no harm in staying at home and having a cozy day in. You can drink at home, too!

Why it's important: Sometimes, it's okay to let go of the person you love for your own happiness, even if it sounds downright cruel. 

7. On children: "I believe that children are our future. Unless we stop them now."

Why it's important: We need to keep tabs on these mini-humans otherwise they tend to grow into weirdoes. 

8. On patience: "Forty seconds? But I want it now!"

Why it's important: Patience is not always the key to success. Know when to put the right kind of pressure!

9. On anger: "Yes, honey...Just squeeze your rage up into a bitter little ball and release it at an appropriate time, like that day I hit the referee with the whiskey bottle."

Why it's important: People aren't always right and you don't always have to agree with them!

12. On caring: "Just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t understand."

Why it's important: You may get frazzled with someone's problems but that doesn't mean you shouldn't empathize.

via GIPHY


Why it's important: Consent. Consent is important. 

15. On manners: "Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You're making a scene'"


via GIPHY


Why it's so important: Don't get too carried away in your anger. Stay calm!

16. On drugs: "Fame was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug were the drugs."
