After 5 Seasons of the most hysterical and consistent comedy since Seinfeld, if you haven’t jumped on the 30 Rock bandwagon yet, now is about time. Tina Fey’s show about a ragtag production operation on the set of an SNL-esque variety show, has an amazing cast of characters, an all-star cast, and is regularly rated by critics as one of the funniest and well-written shows on TV.

Season 6 of 30 Rock premieres tonight and it’s as good a time as ever to become a fan. Trust us, it only takes 1-2 episodes. We can go into detail about any number of 30 Rock related subjects but today’s focus is on business tycoon, stand-out star, and everyone’s favorite character, Jack Donaghy. Jack is a man who came from nothing and rose up to become a modern-day Buddha of business, social interactions, and mind power (and control). Needless to say, he has some wisdom to share, and with just these 20 quotations and a good head of hair, you could be running corporations and banging supermodels in no time. Fuck Self-Help books. A few Jack Donaghyisms are all you need. Don’t hurt yourself.
