Popular quotes can serve both as a reminder of humility, a source of humor and a catalyst of inspiration. That being said, though I may inject some sincerity from time to time this post is meant to be a beacon of hilarity in your otherwise humorless day.

As you’re probably aware the preferred mediums of delivering quotes these days are Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr with some aesthetically pleasing picture as the background. So, why not compile the best and bring them to you each Thursday? If the power of these quotes compels you to go out and make a change then more power to you, so long as that change isn’t listening to Nickelback and typing in comic sans.
