Illustrated by Mallory Heyer.

No, we're not talking about Liz Lemon here. We're talking real-deal, in-the-flesh Fey. Though most of us will never get the chance to meet her face-to-face, it feels like the comedian has a special window peering right into our souls. Fey's views on life, beauty, and career are so precisely on the money, we're starting to think she's a mind reader.

In honor of Fey's birthday today, we're taking a moment to celebrate her as a font of lady wisdom. And, because our plot to become the third member of Team Tina and Amy is still a work in progress, this slideshow of Tina's best quotes will have to do. Ahead, 10 Fey-isms you can (and should) basically model your life after.
