Legitimate advice from pop culture

Every now and then, a song, a TV show, or a movie gets it right. Here is my collection of absolutely fabulous wisdom from popular media:


"You know what makes a good person good? When a good person does something bad, they own up to it. They try to learn something from it and they move on."

- Ron Swanson, Parks & Recreation

"If he don't love you anymore, Just walk your fine ass out the door."

- Lizzo, Good as Hell

“Every time someone steps up and says who they are, the world becomes a better, more interesting place.”

- Captain Ray Holt, Brooklyn 99

"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

- Professor Dumbledore, JK Rowling, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows

“We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.”

- Leslie Knope, Parks & Recreation

"You want some respect? Go out there and get it for yourself!"

- Don Draper, Mad Men

“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things.

Good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.”

- The Doctor, Doctor Who
