What I Really Think When Reading Inspirational Quotes

I was just in the process of reading those fun blog surveys that you know I love so much when I came across one of the questions about “What is your favorite quote?” Usually I just soak up the inspiration and move on. This time though I paused to really consider what the quote was saying.

And then I laughed.

That’s probably not what you were expecting to hear from me, right? From my title you were most likely anticipating something a lot more serious?

Today’s post is far from serious though. We all need to laugh once in awhile (hopefully every day) and I hope that at least one of these inspirational quotes causes at least a little giggle to escape that Friday, bleary-eyed face that I’m confident 99.99% of you are currently are wearing.

Disclaimer: In no way am I trying to negate the positive effects that inspirational quotes can have on a person or make fun of those who post them frequently. I have used them often to cheer me up on a dreary day, probably even some of these quotes specifically. These are just random ones that I found on the internet and I jotted down the first thought that I had in my mind. As you can tell from the comments, my brain has quite the sarcastic tendencies. 

What I Really Think When Reading Inspirational Quotes

????????????????????????????????????????????????

My momma told me to never lie.

———————————————————————

quote-moving-bike

Unless your bike chain falls off. If you try to keep on moving then you would probably end up with a few scraped body limbs.

——————————————————————–

quote-opportunity-door

I think this one should say “If opportunity knocks, build a building, build a door frame…” Then you can insert the door.

———————————————————————

quotes-moon-stars

False. The nearest star is over 4 light years away. If you miss the moon you would probably hit another planet/asteroid before reaching the stars. Oh, and you’d run out of oxygen first…

———————————————————————

quote-stronger-think

Really? Tell that to my hands that think they can carry plastic grocery bags for over a mile. I’m pretty sure I’m NOT as strong as I think.

———————————————————————

quote-strong-rain

Actually, at any given point it’s always raining somewhere on Earth. Unless we are talking about the Moon where it never rains, but I don’t think that’s where the writer was going with this one.

———————————————————————

quote-end-day

I guarantee that there’s another question that I’ll ask myself at the end of the day… “What did I have for breakfast this morning?”
