There are days when you need a little inspiration. When you just need to hear someone tell you that everything is going to be okay. And when your “hang in there” poster won’t cut it, you probably find yourself looking up inspirational quotes and just start running with them. The one problem with inspirational quotes is that sometimes they don’t come from the most reputable of sources. For instance, it’s great to hear that Hitler believes that anything is possible if you put your mind to it - but does anyone really want to be taking pointers from that guy? The answer to that question is a big NO. To illustrate this point further, we’ve put together this list of the most inspirational quotes by the people that we least respect.
You wouldn’t be surprised to find most of the quotes on this list on a poster in a school library. Although, if that was the case, they’d probably have a photo of some mountains or a kitten instead of the quote’s author. The moving quotes collected here are inspiring, confidence building, and they may even start you down the path to a better life - but every word on this list was uttered by someone awful.
Vote up the quotes below that you find to be the most inspirational, regardless of who said it. And if you really like one of them, why don’t you get it printed up and keep it on your wall. Just don’t tell your friends who said it.
