Lily Tomlin – “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe”

Do you remember Lily Tomlin’s one woman show with the above title?  These are some of her quotes:

“When I was growing up I always wanted to be someone. Now I realize I should have been more specific.”

“The road to success is always under construction”

“Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it.”

“I said “Somebody should do something about that.” Then I realized I am somebody.”

“Why is it that when we talk to God we’re said to be praying, but when God talks to us we’re schizophrenic?”

“Reality is a crutch for people who can’t cope with drugs.”

“If you read a lot of books, you’re considered well-read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you’re not considered well-viewed!”

“Instead of working for the survival of the fittest, we should be working for the survival of the wittiest – then we can all die laughing.”

“If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?”

“Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.”

“We have reason to believe that man first walked upright to free his hands for masturbation.”

“Just remember, we’re all in this alone.” 010
