On women in the workforce:
"When faced with sexism or ageism or lookism or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: 'Is this person in between me and what I want to do?' If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work outpacing people that way. Then, when you're in charge, don't hire the people who were jerky to you." - Bossypants, 2011

On being a celebrity:
"When I have a day when my hair is dirty and I'm tired, my friend Kay sings this little song she made up: 'TV star, livin' the life, just like Jennifer Aniston!' My life is not at all like Jennifer's. I never walk dogs on the beach. I'm never in St. Bart's. I'm never on a yacht." Oprah2009

On self-awareness:
"One day last week when I was writing, I was in my sweatpants, exhausted, and I realized I'd just eaten six Kit Kats in 10 minutes." - Oprah2009

On turning 40:
"I need to take my pants off as soon as I get home. I didn't used to have to do that. But now I do." - Bossypants, 2011

On children:
"Ah, babies! They're more than just adorable little creatures on whom you can blame your farts." - Bossypants2011

On womanhood:
"Obviously, as an adult I realize this girl-on-girl sabotage is the third worst kind of female behaviour, right behind saying 'like' all the time and leaving your baby in a dumpster." - Bossypants2011

On fashion: 
"I think women dress for other women to let them know what their deal is. Because if women were only dressing for men, there would be nothing but Victoria's Secret. There would be no Dior." - Vogue2010
