As if SpongeBob wasn't already one of the most iconic characters of our generation, in 2004 the beautiful minds who created this show decided to bless us with The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. This movie was filled with epic songs, great jokes, heart-wrenching moments, and moments that taught us a lot about life. Here are 9 life lessons from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie that are sure to guide you on your own journey to Shell City.

Always know ALL of your options

Plankton could have taken over Bikini Bottom SO much sooner if he had looked all the way through his filing cabinet. Don't be like Plankton, always be aware of every option. Your own Plan Z could just be sitting there, waiting for you to find it and take over the world.

Get you a friend like Patrick Star

He helped SpongeBob through the entire journey, and he wasn't directly affected by the Neptune situation at all. On top of that, he flew over a crowd of people wearing nothing but a banner with his best friend's name on it. Patrick is the original ride or die, and you deserve nothing less than a friend like him.

Be nice to your waiters

The Goofy Goober scene is hilarious, but I couldn't help but feel bad for the poor waiter. This scene reminds us to always be nice to your waiters - they put up with us at our worst (i.e. when we're ice cream drunk), so the least we can do is shown them the respect they deserve.

You don't have to be the strongest, you just have to be stronger than the weakest link

SpongeBob and Patrick didn't have to hold out until the Goofy Goober Theme Song was over, they just had to hold out until the other fish blew it and took the fall for the bubble party. As you can see, you don't always have to be the best of the bunch, you just have to be better than the worst.

Never tell what your next move is

Squidward blabbed that he was going to tell King Neptune about Plankton's plan, and look where it got him. The best way to execute your master plan is to keep it on the DL.

Don't let vanity distract you from real problems

Where was King Neptune during this whole ordeal? Oh yea, worrying about his bald spot instead of saving his kingdom. Don't let something silly like vanity distract you from real problems surrounding you.

Never underestimate the power of a good friendship, it just might save your life one day

The love of friendship is ultimately what saved SpongeBob and Patrick from the evil cyclops. If they hadn't shed a heart shaped tear in what we thought were their final moments together, it would have never run down to the outlet and turning on the sprinklers. At the end of the day, a moment of true friendship might just be what saves you.

Rock and Roll saves lives

All it took was some good rock music to break Plankton's mind control. It's amazing what music can do!

Don't let anyone tell you that you can't, because YOU CAN

Just because you're a knucklehead mcspazzatron doesn't mean you can't save Bikini Bottom. Don't ever let anyone underestimate you, because if your heart is in it you can do anything imaginable!

10 Best Quotes from "The Gospel According to Satan"

The core tenet of spirituality is to understand our spirit rather than the desires of flesh. Easier said than done.

To achieve discipline, the gospel is a massive source of strength and truth to many. Here are some best quotes from the book of how the gospel has been twisted over generations to confuse the message of God.

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek.
