Favorite Quotes from Hannibal Buress
“Whenever I eat at a restaurant I never put the napkin in my lap. People say, ‘Hannibal, why don’t you put the napkin in your lap?’ Because I believe in myself. I believe in my ability to not spill food in my pants ’cause I’m a goddamn adult. And I’ve mastered the art of getting food from my plate to my mouth without messing up my jeans. You need to believe in yourself, too and get your life together, that’s for babies. Have some confidence in your eating abilities and hand/eye coordination.” – Hannibal Buress
“There’s a lot of dudes in my neighborhood that has handlebar mustaches. Which is cool if you want to have a handlebar mustache but don’t try to have a conversation with me like you don’t have a handlebar mustache.” – Hannibal Buress
“I applied for a job at Starbucks. One of the questions was, ‘Why do you want to work at Starbucks?’ Uh, because my life is in shambles.” – Hannibal Buress
“I don’t like when people say, ‘I’ll pray for you. I’m going to pray for you. Praying for you.’ You’re going to pray for me? So you’re going to sit at home and do nothing? ‘Cause that’s what your prayers are; you doing nothing while I struggle with a situation. Don’t pray for me – make me a sandwich or something.” – Hannibal Buress
“We’ll keep you in our thoughts With the other bullshit in your heads? No, keep me out of your thoughts, because I hear some of the stuff you talk about and if that’s close to what you’re thinking about, I don’t want to be around that, so keep me and my family out of your thoughts, unless you’re thinking of making me a sandwich.” – Hannibal Buress
3 Life Lessons from Hannibal Buress
Now that you know all about Hannibal Buress’ net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the life lessons we can learn from him:
1. Never Be a Fly on the Wall
“ ‘Man, I wish I was a fly on the wall in that room when those people were talking … ’ That saying is dumb. You wish you were a fly, why? So you could be annoying and not understand what’s going on at all?
’Cause that’s what flies do all day, when they’re trying not to get killed. They frantically avoid death and they don’t understand English. That saying should be, ‘I wish I was someone that those people trusted.’ ” (“My Name Is Hannibal”)
2. When Dining Out, Keep the Napkin on the Table
“People say, ‘Hannibal, why don’t you put the napkin in your lap?’ Because I believe in myself. I believe in my ability to not spill food on my pants because I’m an adult and I’ve mastered the art of getting food from my plate to my mouth without messing up my jeans.
You need to believe in yourself, too and get your life together. That’s for babies. Have some confidence in your eating abilities and hand-eye coordination.”
3. Find Your Mexico
“A dollar bill isn’t worth that much in England, but it’s worth a lot in Mexico. We all mean different things to different people is what I’m trying to say.
Finding true love is about finding your Mexico, where you go somewhere and say, ‘I get how many tacos for three dollars? Holy (expletive)! I want to stay here forever.’ And you just hope that feeling’s mutual. And that’s love.” (“Comedy Camisado”)
