10 Leslie Knope Quotes To Get You Through The Week

Everyone needs a pick-me-up from time to time, and who better to pick you up than Leslie Knope?

Feeling down? Leslie Knope quotes are the answer. Had a bad week? Leslie Knope quotes are here for you. Leslie is the kind of friend we all wish we had. That’s not to say that our friends aren’t amazing, but wouldn’t it just be the best to have Leslie to tell you that you’re a “beautiful tropical fish” every once in a while? I think so.

If you're having one of those days (or weeks), here are a few Leslie quotes to get you through the week.

1. "I am big enough to admit that I am often inspired by myself."

Her Campus

I remember freshman year like it was just yesterday. I remember frantically walking to my first class with my highlighted map of campus in hand trying to get there early to get a front row seat. I remember learning that college exams are very different from high school ones. Studying the night before an exam just doesn’t cut it like it used to.
