Reading over Break

Since I like to keep up with what influential women are saying, I enjoyed reading Amy Poehler’s Yes Please over Christmas break. I’ve included a few passages that I found interesting or funny.

A word about apologizing: It’s hard to do it without digging yourself in deeper. (71)

People don’t want to hear about the fifteen years of waiting tables and doing small shows with your friends until one of them gets a little more famous and they convince people to hire you and then you get paid and you work hard and spend time getting better and making more connections and friends. (219)

I find that, in general, the amount of sharing men do with each other in one year is about the same as what I share with my female friends while we wait for our cars at the valet. (233-34)
