Inspiration: Quotes

30 Jun

A slightly different post this Sunday, one that doesn’t intend to discredit the power of the inspirational quotes and postcards people make [and occasionally end up on this blog] but to encourage thought as to whether they work or not.

After reading a friends recent blog post about the subject it got me thinking. The internet is full of these little pictures – simple text overlaid on a pretty image – are we seeing so many of them that they no longer mean anything? Do we just see it as another short term moral booster or as a long term goal? Maybe I’m having some form of existential crisis and I don’t know it yet.

Have a look at Helen’s post at Journey to Liberty’s and see what you think – it makes for interesting reading and she’s far more eloquent than I am!

After this I feel that I can’t leave you with nothing, so here’s everyone’s favourite calming manatee.
