Lately I’ve been into books written by female comedians, if you haven’t been able to tell. This one doesn’t disappoint. I love Ellen because not only can she make every one laugh, but she seems like such a great person and she loves to throw a good dance party. There were many points in this book where I was literally laughing out loud (LOL). You should read it, seriously…it’s funny and inspirational.
My favorite quotes from Ellen’s Book:
“When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important”.
“My point is, life is about balance. The good and the bad. The highs and the lows. The pina and the colada.”
“You just have to keep driving down the road. It’s going to bend and curve and you’ll speed up and slow down, but the road keeps going.”
“I cannot believe they haven’t yet come up with a better screening process than the mammogram. If a man had to put his special parts inside a clamp to test him for anything, I think they would come up with a new plan before the doctor finished saying, “Put that thing there so I can crush it.”
“Contribute to the world. Help people. Help one person. Help someone cross the street today. Help someone with directions unless you have a terrible sense of direction. Help someone who is trying to help you. Just help. Make an impact. Show someone you care. Say yes instead of no. Say something nice. Smile. Make eye contact. Hug. Kiss. Get naked.”
