"The Simpsons" has been around since 1989, which is absolutely insane for any television show, let alone an animated sitcom on Fox. In that time "The Simpsons" has covered just about every single kind of situation you can think of, and thereby have pretty much the perfect quote for any situation. It would be impossible to actually write down every single brilliant quote for everyday life that "The Simpsons" has spawned over the years, so instead I'm driving down the five best "Simpson" quotes to tell yourself for everyday use.
I'm pretty sure I have this conversation with my scale every morning. You spend the whole week eating well, exercising, not giving into binge eating every night after a long day of the two former and what you get for it? Maybe you lost a pound, maybe not. Sometimes it just doesn't feel worth it, and this quote sums up that frustration. The scale is one of mankind's worst inventions. We could've spent that time inventing something delicious to eat instead of something that punishes us for eating delicious things.
Trying and failing is one of life's painful inevitabilities, which is all the more reason never to try - at least according to this quote by Homer Simpson. Although in truth you should always try, this is something I often wish someone had told me a long time ago. Trying and failing is always discouraging, but remembering this quote always brings a smile to my face. Ironically, it actually encourages me to try even harder next time. This goes to show the power of reverse psychology. They say the key to humor is tragedy plus time. I can think of no better way of passing time and thinking up quotes from "The Simpsons" like this to put you in a better mood.
There are certain things that when you see them just don't seem right. For me it's things like the residue left behind on a car's rear bumper by a sticker that's been removed; the unfinished pages and a coloring book, and yeah, flying a kite at night is pretty unwholesome as well. Some things just don't seem quite right, I always remember this quote when I see them. It's difficult to explain why certain things just don't sit well with you, whether it's particular words or certain things people do. However, I think we've all had that look that Marge has on her face when she sees Bart outside flying a kite in the middle of the night.
