The best lessons I learned in the past few years:
If you have the urge to correct someone for a statement that makes them happy or excited and isn't hurting anyone, don't. All it does is make them feel embarrassed and you sound like an asshole.
Everyone is going through a different kind of hard time. Never assume the poor are scared, the rich are happy, the married are in love, or the loners are lonely.
If Sriracha is an option -- opt for it.
Most people would rather be hurt than bored.
When people tell you you can't do something that doesn't harm yourself or others picture them saying it while buying adult diapers.
Frowning people driving past you in air conditioning should make you jog faster.
Mistakes leave scars, regrets leave wounds.
Community seasons 1-3 is the best comedy writing on network television, ever. Do yourself a favor and watch all of that.
Nice derives from Latin, it means ignorant.
People want sex, sugar, sleep and hope.
They need encouragement.
If you're going to hit someone make sure they aren't getting back up soon.
Look up. You never look up.
Fools rush in, but at least they moved forward.
Don't trust men whose only obligations are pets that can be left alone for a weekend.
It's okay to lose friends to entropy.
You don't have to do everything you say you want to do, but you better do some of it.
I'd rather be known for admitting mistakes than avoiding them.
Cat litter: you get what you pay for.
Anyone who tells you violence and suffering should be avoided at all costs are more dangerous than most people realize.
Smile at strangers.
Forgiveness is a good first choice. A right hook is a decent second, but always follow up with the first choice.
Running is bad for your joints. Diabetes is bad for your everything.
Liberals and conservatives are people that haven't realized yet that punching under water is just distraction from the sharks.
Saying you're going to stop eating meat to prevent animal suffering is like saying you're not having children to prevent child abuse.
Gay rights matter.
You do not have the right to be recreationally offended. You have the privilege, dick.
Don't be a snob about music. It's the worst.
Make the locals nervous.
Sex is not dirty, shameful, or bad -- it was made by the creator of fireflies and thunderstorms.
Bourbon is important.
Kale is important.
Put down that goddamned phone.
Guns don't kill people. Lannisters kill people.
If you think public speaking is scary you are grossly underestimating the public's apathy.
Most people who enjoy gory movies have no idea what the inside of a freshly-killed pig smells like.
You have no idea how terrified most people are.
Hug your lover from behind when they are making breakfast on the stove.
Entertainment costs money. Having fun is free.
If you can get a horse, get a horse.
Tennessee is the best state in America. Hands down.
Money and time isn't stopping you, but that excuse is.
Food tastes better if you grow it.
Don't hang out with people who don't let dogs in their car. Christ. Just don't.
Happiness is a choice. You need to make it every single minute.
If you and your family would be dead if you were forced to stay home for 2 weeks without electricity or running water you are doing this all wrong.
Religion is not legislation. Legislation is not safety. Law and comfort don't listen, they are reactions.
Don't confuse acquisition with accomplishment.
Leave the light on.
Don't prefer to be comfortable. It ruins everything.
You're not a coward if you don't jump out of a plane with your friends. You're a coward if being called a pussy is all it takes to make you.
Eat more meat -- less bread.
If you can get a dog, get a dog.
Moving to a new place isn't personal growth, but if it grants perspective it's a start.
Instagram is not required validation, for anything really.
Drink more water.
Never hold back kindness.
And remember to look up. You never look up.
