These Pretzels are Making me Thirsty: 7 Life Lessons from George Costanza

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.
