Favorite Quotes from Matt Groening

“Where do babies come from? Don’t bother asking adults. They lie like pigs. However, diligent independent research and hours of playground consultation have yielded fruitful, if tentative, results. There are several theories. Near as we can figure out, it has something to do with acting ridiculous in the dark. We believe it is similar to dogs when they act peculiar and ride each other.” – Matt Groening

This is called “making love”. Careful study of popular song lyrics, advertising catch-lines, TV sitcoms, movies, and T-Shirt inscriptions offers us significant clues as to its nature. Apparently, it makes grown-ups insipid and insane. Some graffiti was once observed that said: “sex is good”. All available evidence, however, points to the contrary.”  – Matt Groening 

“I plead alignment to the flakes of the untitled snakes of a merry cow and to the Republicrats for which they scam: one nacho, underpants with licorice and jugs of wine for owls.” – Matt Groening

“Living creatively is really important to maintain throughout your life. And living creatively doesn’t mean only artistic creativity, although that’s part of it. It means being yourself, not just complying with the wishes of other people.” – Matt Groening

“Lisa, I apologize to you, I was wrong, I take it all back. Always be yourself. If you want to be sad, honey, be sad. We’ll ride it out with you. And when you get finished feeling sad, we’ll still be there. From now on, let me do the smiling for both of us.” – Matt Groening
