The Perfect Amy Poehler Quote For Any Situation

Amy Poehler turns 44 today, which could be surprising to anyone who remembers her annoying little sister Kaitlin character from SNL, or her most recent turn as a teenage theatre counselor in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Then again, she's been doling out the wisdom of someone beyond her years for a while now. The comedienne is simultaneously eternally youthful and a font of timeless truths.
Her endlessly quotable speeches and one-liners have guided us through the highs and lows of life. She's doled them out as a Weekend Update anchor on SNL, and in character as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation. She's provided inspiration as cofounder of Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, a website and web series for tweens and teens. She's served up memorable lines in speeches, interviews, and onstage co-hosting the Golden Globes with Tina Fey. And she offers a whole slew of them in her memoir, Yes Please.
Whether you're feeling put down by a romantic prospect or panicking because you lost your phone, going in for a job interview or leaving the bar, there is an Amy Poehler quote to make you feel better about life. Here are a mere 30 of them.
