Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Culture
The problem with a lot of the "inspirational" quotes on the internet isn't just that they're treacly and banal... it's that they're often not real quotes! As BunB (NOT Jay-Z) said: "Go read a book you illiterate son of a bitch and step up your vocab" -- or at least check out sources like Quote Investigator before you start looking for a picture of a sunset or a rainbow to make an inspirational meme.
Quote Investigator is one of my favorite sites on the Internet. Well said, BunB!
ALWAYS double check your sources!
