Six Amy Schumer Quotes To Live By [Watch]

In honour of her Comedy Central skit.

Whether she's fighting for the right to drop the P-word on television or lending her supporting to essential causes, Amy Schumer is basically just the best. 

This week, she took to the stage for Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars, and performed a hilariously honest and on-point stand-up set about being a woman in Hollywood (or anywhere, really).

Amy's pointed commentary isn't just for the lols, it also calls out the dumb double-standards and lazy assumptions that women have to put up with all the time. So in honour of this, here are six times that Amy Schumer called it like it is:

1. I get labeled a sex comic. But if a guy got up onstage and pulled his dick out, everybody would say: "He's a thinker." — Comedy Central

2. I don't want "it" enough to not eat. — Twitter

3. I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I'm beautiful. I say if I'm strong. You will not determine my story — I will. I will speak and share and fuck and love and I will never apologise to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it. I stand here and I am amazing, for you. Not because of you. I am not who I sleep with. I am not my weight. I am not my mother. I am myself. — Vulture

4. Woman who likes herself #OffendEveryoneIn4Words — Twitter

5. I'm lucky because I grew up pretty delusional about how attractive I was. I was blessed with parents who filled my head with lies. — Time

6. On being rejected: I have never thought, What's wrong with me? I always think, What's wrong with you? — Cosmopolitan

She is a shining example to us all.
