If you’ve ever worked in an office, or spent time in a dentist’s chair staring at the ceiling, or gone through a tough time and made the mistake of posting about it on social media, then you’re likely acquainted with the annoyance of “inspirational quotes.”
Meant to make you think about how lucky you are, or to keep pushing you forward or something, they’re largely platitudes that mean nothing at need to die a fiery death.
These 16 “inspirational quotes” – which are really just word vomit from random people – prove that point nicely, I think.
16. Is that a compliment?
From boys, it just might be.
15. Teachers are so lucky.
I bet they’re so inspired all of the time.
14. I want to hug too many of these young women.
13. How sweet.
He seems like a keeper.
12. Goodbye, sir.
It’s none of your business!
11. The picture really makes it pop.
Also, who says this to their teacher?
10. Seriously, I really hope she’s dumped him.
This guy sounds like a peach.
9. He really knows how to charm a lady.
Go ahead and mail him that cash and a visa then, yeah?
8. Is that supposed to be a humble brag?
Because it’s not working.
7. The next one is about how she can’t go to school.
6. He knows you best.
And also he’s seen your bank account.
5. Some variation of this every day.
From 10 different kids. Sigh.
4. Well, he gave it a shot.
It’s not bad, actually. If you can figure it out.
3. Look at all of those boys.
She’s going to have some good ones.
2. Friends are so sweet.
Also, why does everyone have to rag on the milkman. Maybe he’s handsome!
1. He seems mature.
Then again, is anyone mature in a fight?
I feel inspired by some of these, anyway – to just live my life the way I see fit.
