SpongeBob SquarePants is an icon of our generation and notably known as the zany yellow sponge who lives in Bikini Bottom.

On November 26th, Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of this nostalgic show we've all grown up loving, unfortunately succumbed to his battle with ALS and left many hearts weighing heavy, myself included.

It doesn't really matter how old I get, I'm probably going to reference SpongeBob quotes until the day I die and I'm not ashamed of it. It's a classic cartoon that has formed into a culture of its own. Whether it's a viral meme used as a reaction or a one-liner to express what's on our mind, we've all referenced SpongeBob before.

In honor of the man who started an entire culture based off a yellow sponge, here are some all-time memorable quotes.
