Female Writers We Love: Tina Fey

Female Writers We Love: Tina Fey

Happy Birthday to Tina Fey, the woman who not only broke the glass ceiling of comedy, but shattered it home-run-style into a billion pieces. To honor Tina's birthday, I am highlighting some of the best quotes from her book, Bossypants.  If this doesn't leave you inspired, what will?

“If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important rule of beauty, which is: who cares?” 
― Tina FeyBossypants
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.” 
― Tina FeyBossypants
“Obviously, as an adult I realize this girl-on-girl sabotage is the third worst kind of female behavior, right behind saying "like" all the time and leaving your baby in a dumpster.” 
― Tina FeyBossypants
“Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through, and opinions will change organically when you’re the boss. Or they won’t. Who cares? Do your thing, and don’t care if they like it.” 
― Tina FeyBossypants
