Words of Wisdom from Mindy Kaling

In honor of the awesome Mindy Kaling's birthday, here's a compilation of some of her best (and funniest) words of wisdom.

On Friendship...
“One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about.”

On High School...
“I just want ambitious teenagers to know it is totally fine to be quiet, observant kids. Besides being a delight to your parents, you will find you have plenty of time later to catch up.” 

On Socializing...
“If I’m at a party where I’m not enjoying myself, I will put some cookies in my jacket pocket and leave without saying good-bye.”

On Body Image...
“If someone called me chubby, it would no longer be something that kept me up late at night. Being called fat is not like being called stupid or unfunny, which is the worst thing you could ever say to me. Do I envy Jennifer Hudson for being able to lose all that weight and look smokin’ hot? Of course, yes. Do I sometimes look at Gisele Bundchen and wonder how awesome life would be if I never had to wear Spanx? Duh, of course. That’s kind of the point of Gisele Bundchen. And maybe I will, once or twice, for a very short period of time. But on the list of things I want to do in my lifetime, that’s not near the top. I mean, it’s not near the bottom either. I’d say it’s right above “Learn to drive a vespa,” but several notches below “film a chase scene for a movie.” 


On Dating...
“I guess nothing puts a damper on a one-night stand as much as your friend pointing out all the opportunities where you might have been killed.” 

And on life in general...
“Sometimes you just have to put on lip gloss and pretend to be psyched.”
