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