George Costanza (of the sitcom, Seinfeld, played by Jason Alexander – and if you didn’t know that, I’m a little sad for you) is
arguably definitely one of the best characters to grace our television screens.
Okay, I know that using the word grace and George Costanza in the same sentence is a bit overreaching.
But, somehow, Jason Alexander managed to make George, the neurotic, selfish, man-child into a can’t-miss character. So, without further ado, 7 important lessons we learned from George.
1) On perception from others:
“Leave on a high note.”
2) On the art of the con:
“It’s not a lie if you believe it.”
3) On avoiding more responsibility:
“When you look annoyed all the time, people think you’re busy.”
4) On motivation:
“I love a good nap. Sometimes it’s the only thing getting me outta bed in the morning.”
5) On mustaches:
“I feel like an out-of-work porn star.”
6) On gratitude:
“Do you ever get down on your knees and thank God that you know me and have access to my dementia?” (here’s looking at you, Bacon)
7) On perspective:
If you take everything I’ve accomplished in my life and condense it down to one day…it looks decent.
Bacon: Turkeys. Go.
