Parks & Recreation is a genius, comedic, political satire sitcom and another product of the Greg Daniels and Michael Schur collaboration. It stars Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, an enthusiastic government employee in the Parks and Recreation department hoping to make the city of Pawnee a better place to live in.
Joining Leslie in her hilarious misadventures in the world of politics is Rashida Jones as Ann Perkins, a nurse who becomes Leslie's best friend, Aziz Ansari as Tom Haverford, an underachieving subordinate, Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson, the director of the department who is a staunch libertarian, Aubrey Plaza as April Ludgate who joins as an intern, and Chris Pratt as Andy Dwyer, a slow but lovable character. We later meet Adam Scott as Ben Wyatt who comes to audit the town along with Rob Lowe as the optimistic and health-conscious Chris Traeger. Other iconic characters include Jim O'Heir as Garry "Jerry" Gergich, Retta as Donna Meagle, and Billy Eichner as Craig Middlebrooks.

With an optimistic approach, determination, and a bunch of binders, Leslie was up for any challenge. Here are some of the best quotes from her to keep your spirits up:
