14 Brilliant Bill Murray Quotes You’ve Never Heard Before

11. When asked, “How does it feel to be Bill Murray?” he replied: “There’s a wonderful sense of well-being that begins to circulate, up and down your spine. And you feel something that makes you almost want to smile. So what’s it like to be me? Ask yourself, ‘What’s it like to be me?’ The only way we’ll ever know what it’s like to be you is if you work your best at being you as often as you can, and keep reminding yourself that’s where home is.” ~ from a Q & A in Toronto, CA

12. When asked whether he ever has bad days, he answered: “When I feel I’m stuck, I do something… not like I’m Mother Theresa, or anything, but there’s someone who’s forgotten about in your life, all the time. Someone who could use an ‘Attaboy,’ or a ‘How you doin’ out there?’ It’s that sort of a scene, remembering that we die alone. We’re born alone. We do need each other. It’s lonely to really effectively live your life, and anyone you can give help to, or get help from, that’s part of your obligation.” ~ from his New York Times interview

13. When asked about how the lessons he learned from Improv applied to life: “It pays off when you’re in an elevator and people are uncomfortable. You can just say, ‘That’s a beautiful scarf.’ It’s just thinking about making someone else feel comfortable. You don’t worry about yourself, because we’re vibrating together. If I can make yours just a little bit groovier, it’ll affect me. It comes back, somehow.” ~ from his New York Times interview

14. When asked about the meaning of life, he replied: “As I once said to one of my brothers, ‘This is your life, not a rehearsal.’ Somewhere there’s a score being kept, so you have an obligation to live life as well as you can, be as engaged as you can. The human condition means that we can zone out and forget what the hell we’re doing. So the secret is to have a sense of yourself, your real self, your unique self. And not just once in a while, or once a day, but all through the day, the week and life.” ~ from an interview with TimeOut London
