Bill Murray has always struck the perfect balance of warmth and outrageousness, whether he’s showing up in a classic movie role or the front door of a random house party, uninvited but obviously welcome. He knows how to make art that makes life worth living, but unlike so many of his pretentious Hollywood peers, he also knows how to live. That rare equilibrium has made him a sort of modern-day philosopher, a role he fell into as accidentally as one of the countless movie lines he made up on the spot.
So read these wise words from the philosophy of Bill Murray and try to incorporate them into your own life. But, as Bill would say, don’t try too hard.
