Unfortunately, there are seemingly more of the stupid, lame, confusing, irritating and meaningless quotes. These are usually written by someone named Anonymous – a most famous, yet shy person who somehow gets quoted but never credited.
So humble. So giving. So obtuse. Seriously -- where do people get this stuff from? What stuff? This stuff.
Stupid Quote 1
“Sometimes you just gotta be your own hero and save your own little heart. Because sometimes, the people you can’t imagine living without, can actually live without you.” – Anonymous
Um, what? You gotta be your own hero because someone can live without you? I don’t get it. A hero saves things. People can live without you. I agree with these ideas on their own, but what on earth do they mean in relation to each other?
Stupid Quote 2
“Often you think when you are rejected that you are not good enough, but the truth is they weren’t ready for all you have to offer.” – Anonymous
You know what this thinking breeds? Reality show freaks. This is the horrible singer who cries when the judges tell her she’s a horrible singer; the horrible dancer who cries when the judges tell her she’s a horrible dancer; the horrible cook/driver/racer/dater/designer who fucking cries after paralyzing the people in the room with the extreme depth of her horribleness.
Hey, Anonymous! Guess what? You weren’t good enough.
Stupid Quote 3
“You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted.” – Anonymous
I’m pretty sure that’s not how it works.
Stupid Quote 4
“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.” – Anonymous
I believe that is called addiction, and it’s not sweet or romantic even when it’s about people. If you can’t stop thinking about someone you are likely obsessive and 16. If you can’t stop thinking about where to get your next drink, come over to my place. Kidding. But seriously, Anonymous – get your head out of your ass.
Stupid Quote 5
“Silence is the most powerful scream.” – Anonymous
I just. I don’t even know what … I don’t even know what this might mean. And I’m pretty creative. But … it’s just so … nothing. It’s nothing at all. This quote is a fleck of dust that used to live under my couch and was eaten by a dung beetle. The meaning of this quote is as important to life as a mannequin’s partial fingerprint is to solving a crime. Its lack of depth is so significant there isn’t a known measurement small enough to even halve it and come up with .5 of miniscule. It’s nothing.
Let’s end this with a letter.
Keep your pedantic thoughts inside your butterfly-covered diary. Your nonsensical syrup is rootless and void of meaning. Please fuck off.
