Tim Allen has one of the more interesting feeds on Twitter. There’s no telling what you’re going to get from him. Allen is a multi-faceted guy. He’s a comedian, a movie star, and a master of the family sitcom. More recently, he added competition TV show host to his resume. So, it stands to reason that the thoughts that he shares on social media would be a mixed bag.
Usually, Tim Allen keeps his followers up-to-date with his television shows. Even then, he does so with a dose of humor. At the same time, he shares his excitement about the projects with his fans. Other times, Allen uses his social media platforms to crack jokes. However, every now and then, he throws something out there to spark a discussion.
This was the case last night when Tim Allen posted a quote on his Twitter and asked his fans if they know who said it.
The quote that Tim Allen shared is, “When the solution is simple, God is answering.”
It didn’t take Tim Allen’s followers long to figure out who said those words. Within moments of the original tweet, one user had the answer. It was Albert Einstein. However, they didn’t know the answer off the top of their head. Instead, they had to look it up.
Quotes from Tim Allen’s Mike Baxter
Tim Allen shared some great words from one of the most important scientists in modern history. However, his Last Man Standing character has some solid nuggets of wisdom to share.
For instance, Tim Allen’s character can shed some light on life. At the same time, he can make you look at things a little differently. That’s not an easy thing to do especially when he’s wedging in the wisdom between jokes and zingers.
For instance, he said, “If we just hunker down in our separate corners, nobody wins.” You can take that one pretty deep. It could apply to political discourse. However, it could also apply to a family squabble or a disagreement among friends. To expand on that, Tim Allen, as Mike Baxter, said, “If nobody’s talking, then nobody’s listening. If nobody’s listening, nobody’s learning.”
Honestly, if no one is learning or listening, we’re never going to get anywhere. Again, that’s something you can apply to just about any level of life.
However, Baxter isn’t always all about coming together, discussing things, and learning from one another. He knows that sometimes you have to do what you think is right. For instance, he said, “Sometimes you just do what you want, and other people just deal with it.”
That’s what Tim Allen has been doing for decades. Some people don’t like what he does, and that’s okay. There are millions of people out there who do. That’s who he does it for.
Give it a few years and people will be posting quotes from the Tool Man himself in tweets just like the one above.
