8 Harvey Specter Quotes to Live By
By Naveen Ganglani
The 8th season of hit TV series Suits is almost upon us. While it’s going to be a challenge for the show to make up for the absence of the departed Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle, Garbriel Macht’s character, Harvey Specter, will still be around to provide enough charisma to have audiences glued to their seats.
It’s no secret the character of Harvey is one of TV’s most popular – he’s confident, bold, and interesting. He also provides memorable quotes that make you want to put on a suit and kick ass in the court room.
Okay, maybe not exactly. But the show’s writers have allowed Harvey to make statements that can help you out with certain situations in your lives.
Here are 8 of the best ones:
“Don’t raise your voice. Improve your argument.”
Trust me: you sounding louder than the other person doesn’t make you smarter or the winner. It’s all about wit. When you have enough of that, you can be as cool as a cucumber and still come out on top.
“Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself.”
When your name speaks for itself – and in some cases, sends shivers down the spines of your rivals – you know you’ve got it pretty good. How to get there will be the challenge.
“Let them hate. Just make sure they spell your name right.”
Such a classic. Got haters? That’s a good thing. It means you’re doing something right.
“When you’re backed against the wall, break the goddamn thing down.”
In other words, eliminate your weaknesses. Think the odds are stocked up against you? Do everything in your power to turn things around.
“Winners don’t make excuses.”
You know who does? Losers. Are you a loser or a winner?
“It’s not bragging if it’s true.”
Here’s a rule of life: you don’t have to be “humble” just because everyone wants you to be – especially not if you’ve worked your ass off to be as great as you are. Flaunt those accomplishments, baby.
“They think you care, they’ll walk all over you.”
Sometimes, caring can be a weakness. Be headstrong with your approach against anyone, and you’ll find yourself with the upper hand.
“Loyalty is a two-way street. If I’m asking it from you, then you’re getting it from me.”
Because in some areas in the world, the rules of yesterday still apply. And what defines a person’s character? His or her integrity.
