The Best Pop Culture Quotes from Oprah's Lifeclass NYC

Photo by Pop Culture Passionistas

Sure, going on the road with Oprah's Lifeclass: the Tour was inspirational. And we wrapped up our journey with intentions of becoming better people. But we are the Pop Culture Passionistas after all. So while our time in New York at Radio City Music Hall with Lifeclass was filled with words of wisdom from Oprah and her guests Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra and Perez Hilton, we also managed to pull some pop culture nuggets and moments of comedy from the experience.

Gayle King (Oprah's BFF) on What She Doesn't Like About Yoga
"The bending and the stretching parts."

Oprah Winfrey on Stopping for a Commercial Break During Taping
"Another commercial break? This network ought to be rich after all these commercials."

Deepak Chopra on The Beatles
"[The Beatles] were fiends of mine. George Harrison and I traveled all over India together. We had a lot of fun. My greatest memory was we did a hallucinogenic drug together."

Tony Robbins on the Effects of Technology
"Everybody expects everything should be automatic... When I was a kid and I wanted to steal music, I had to take a risk, not just take whatever you wanted without thinking about it. The world has changed where people expect everything instantly, often for free, without any effort."

Deepka Chopra on Human Beings
"We are not human thinkings or human doings we are human beings."

Perez Hilton on What He Said to NKOTB's Jonathan Knight
"Yes, I hear what you're saying. In the past I was hurtful to you. I own that. I'm not expecting you to forgive me. I'm not asking you to forgive me. I'm apologizing again, because I had apologized to him in the past, but I apologized yet again... But I'm not going to be defined by all the things I did in the past."

Deepak Chopra Says You Are Not a Banana
"Even tough you have 23,000 genes, 65% are the same as a banana. But you're not a banana. 84% of your genes are the same as a mouse. Almost 99% of your genes are the same as a monkey. So what's the difference? The difference is how you turn these genes on, and modulate them, and how you turn them off. And we now know that you can do that by how you live your life."

Tony Robbins on Needing a Strong Partner
"I love my boy, but I need my general."

Deepak Chopra on Taking Charge of Your Own Life
"Become the director, the producer, the choreographer and the hero of you own story."

Perez Hilton, Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey on Rebranded Aha! Moments
Perez: "I've been having multiple Aha! orgasms."
Deepak: "That's another word for transcendce."
Oprah: "I want to rebrand that as Aha O's!"
