10 Motivational Leslie Knope Quotes We All Need To Hear During Finals

Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation is easily the most spirited, intense, and loyal character on the show. Some of the things she says may sound absolutely ridiculous, but they have some truth and will definitely help you battle the next few weeks of finals.

1. “No matter what I do, literally nothing bad can happen to me.”

Even if you have eight hours to write two papers, study, and sleep before your next final, just remember that you are invincible. (Well at least your professors think you are with all the work they want you to do.)

2. “There’s nothing we can’t do if we work hard, never sleep, and shirk all other responsibilities in our lives.”

This quote pretty much sums up our habits during finals, so according to Leslie, we can accomplish anything.

3. “We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.”

Even when everything seems like it’s going wrong, Leslie reminds us that we should always put waffles and friends first. In that order. Seriously, don’t forget to eat while studying for finals. Calories don’t count for the next two weeks.

4. “What I hear when I’m being yelled at is people caring really loudly at me.”

Studying for exams can make you and your friends get a bit touchy, so always remember that they care, even if they don’t sound like they are happy with you at the moment.

5. “I am big enough to admit I am often inspired by myself.”

Looking back at all the hard work you have done so far can be inspiring. A little self-confidence doesn’t hurt.

6. “You are a beautiful, talented, brilliant musk ox.”

Never forget.

7. “Hey Leslie, it’s Leslie. Hang in there. I love you. Bye.”

Don’t forget to leave yourself encouraging messages, because if someone has to get you through the next few weeks it might as well be you.

8. “I always keep emergency s’mores in my car.”

Always be prepared for a much needed study break, because you never know when someone has a portable fire pit that you can use. Or at least a snack that you can eat in the library without getting kicked out.

9. “Slowing down is not really my jam.”

You can sleep over break in just two short weeks, right?

10. “No I can’t, I can’t go home. I have to get ready for the Chamber of Secrets.”

Don’t forget what’s most important to you during finals, even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone else at the time because of your lack of sleep. You do you.
