Favorite Quotes from Bill Burr
“Only an adult with dying dreams can appreciate how awesome it is to have a dog.”
“I’m an idiot, basically. I don’t think that I’m a dumb guy, but I also realise that I have access to about 0.1 percent of the information that I need to have a truly informed opinion about half the stuff I talk about. I’m like that loud guy in the bar, who kind of makes sense for about ten minutes, and then you realise he flunked everything at high school so you just laugh at him.”
“You have no idea how long a year is until you’re stone sober.”
“There are no winners in this election . I paid attention to it for about two months and then it just started to depress me. At least Hillary’s [Clinton] a politician, but the fact that you’ve got a guy from a reality TV show! I have to say, out of everything I’ve ever watched in sports – the greatest comebacks ever – watching [Donald Trump] get the nomination for the Republican Party is the most astounding thing I’ve ever seen.”
Tips for success from Bill Burr
“Surround yourself with positive people. Also, be a positive person. Root for people. Somebody else’s success is not your failure.”
“Deny your emotions and act like you have answers.”
“I wish they would teach it in schools: Give people the belief that they are going to do well. A lot of people are really talented and scared to follow their talent because you don’t know where it’s going.”
Bill Burr’s Controversial #MeToo Comment
Bill Burr explained in his usual brash tone, “It’s like, people freak out for 20 minutes, and then they move on to the next thing. The whole thing is just all controversy-based. Like some of this #MeToo stuff, you’ll see somebody get accused of something and it’s — ‘Ahh!!’ — this giant thing. And then when people come out like, ‘Hey man, you know I dated him for three years.
He’s a cool guy,’ that gets nothing. It gets investigated, and they find out there’s nothing there, and they rehired the person, that gets nothing. What gets [attention] is negative.”
