We've Fallen into a Trap

      At first, I wanted to put together a list of Larry David's quotes for the today's post, but then I thought of his co-writer on the Seinfeld show, Jerry Seinfeld, and decided that a selection of his quotes would make a better Friday post. I'll definitely post about Larry David in the near future, worry not, because he's too cool of a cat for me to 'snub' him, but today it's all about Jerry. I don't think Jerry Seinfeld needs much of an introduction so I'll just get to the good part — here are some of my favorite Jerry Seinfeld quotes.





















>>> I'd been working as a comedian since I was 21 and I didn't get the sitcom until I was 35. By then I'd been knocked around quite a bit. Then I did the show for nine years and I wasn't going out every night afterward. So at 44, I was unleashed on the world for the first time as a famous person of means. By then I'd gotten a good education on life.

 >>> According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.

>>> Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains, a pretty violent image there. I think if you've got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, maybe laundry isn't your biggest problem. Maybe you should get rid of the body before you do the wash.

>>> The first birthday party you have and the last birthday party you have are actually quite similar. You just kind of site there. You're the least excited person at the party.

>>> Proof that we don't understand death is that we give dead people a pillow.

>>> Dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them's making a poop, the other one's carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge?

>>> Men want the same thing from their underwear that they want from women: a little bit of support and a little bit of freedom.

>>> A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking. 

>>> Men and women will never understand each other. My advice is to just stop trying. Just forget it. I know I will never understand women. I will never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root — and still be afraid of a spider. 

>>> You have to motivate yourself with challenges. That's how you know you're still alive.

>>> To me, if life boils down to one thing, it's movement. To live is to keep moving.

>>>  Men don't care what's on TV. They only care what else is on TV.

>>> We've fallen into a trap of ever-widening orbits of contact and there is total disregard for the present moment.

>>> There is no such thing as fun for the whole family.

>>> A two-year-old kid is kind of like having a blender, but you don't have a top for it.

>>> The best revenge is living well.

>>> People who read the tabloids deserve to be lied to.

  2. Morning Peet! They both are such great and fun characters! I enjoy a lot reading all the Jerry Seinfeld quotes, some of them made me smile too! Actually, I hate public speaking too, I avoid all the situations that can make me involved in it, Im so shy! I always think that bookstores are one of the best and quiet places, I love to go there too even I wont buy anything, just to relax. Another sentence I love is the second to last one, I think there isnt any better revenge of it, together with the "who cares"!:) Happy weekend my dear, jope u enjoy it at the best! Kisses! xo

  3. Haha, all good points! Love the quote about funerals and eulogies- public speaking is scarier than death ;)

    1. I'm freaked out by public speaking too, I don't know how people do it. On the other hand, I know how people do death, that seems easy... Not fun, but easier than public speaking for sure.:)

  4. I love your hair, mascara, and all the funny jokes that have truth to them. That green nail polish is great! Wait a minute. "People who read the tabloids deserve to be lied to"? Does that mean the articles I read about "Baby Born with Dad's Tattoo" and "Six U.S. Senators Are Space Aliens" might not be true? I may have to make amendments to my knowledge base!

  5. You don't have top for your 2 year old. Best. Quote. Ever. Being a babysitter, I agree with you 100%. That's why being 2 is called the "terrible twos" stage.

    I love your new hair color and mascara. Looking great Peet!

  6. First of all your pictures are crazy fantastic - love it. I know who Jerry is of course, but I don't really follow his work, but I like his humour as shown in these quotes - when you think about them, they're all pretty much true. The public speaking and death one was my favourite because that's the order I'd put them in too ha ha

    1. He's a fun and funny sir, I agree, I like the trueness of his remarks. The realer the joke, the funnier it is ... I think ...

  7. Hi Peet! Long time no see! Hah, loved the quote about men and women :-) I personally prefer spiders over waxing my legs though. Less hairy ;-)

    1. :D I'm a spider fan myself too. Some of them are definitely a lot less harry than me from time to time.:D

  10. Hi Peet, thanks for your warmth and kindness, you have the most radiant soul! I am so honoured by your last comment and please know that everything I said about you is true :) Haha, these are some brilliant lines, so true to life and a few things that more people should learn to accept. Loved the ones about the detergents, bookstores (although I can't say the say about the Twilight fans) and the tabloid comment, we should seriously not be so obsessed with celebrity lives, its unhealthy.

    1. I'm starting to like you more and more, babe.;) And I completely agree with your last words — they should just stop printing them, it's an addiction, an unhealthy obsession. Not to mention unethical to pry like that...

  11. Not gonna lie, I went into this post with low expectations, but these are actually really great. Who knew Jerry was so insightful?
