Lily Tomlin 's L-Words

I love to browse through famous people quotes! It's great when you are in need of a profound piece of wisdom and your own words just sound profane, shallowbrained or simply like they were written by a 6 year old.... I usually resort to poets or classical writers (for the intellectual touch), sometimes to actresses ( the cool women category) and rarely popstars (when in need of intended profanity with a kick.)
Some of my favourite quotes in the category funny and wise at the same time are by Lily Tomlin, and as I just rediscovered a Lily quote collection I had bookmarked, I have the urge to share them.
So here are some of Lily's L-Words (L as in life, laugh, looney, lily-speak):
- Why is it that when we talk to God we're said to be praying, but when God talks to us we're schizophrenic?
- Sometimes I worry about being a success in a mediocre world.
- The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.
- Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it.

- I've always wanted to be somebody, but I see now I should have been more specific.

- If you read a lot of books you are considered well read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well viewed.
- Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?
- Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain.
