Here’s a bit of advice: if you’re feeling a little down, whatever you do, don’t browse the “Quotes” section of Pinterest. It will send you spiraling into a full blown depression for one of three reasons:
- The realization that there are people out there who actually believe some of the crap they post
- The bad spelling/copyediting
- The relative lack of actually good quotes and witticisms
Here is an assortment of some of the most terrible quotes I could find, many of which, I’m hoping, came from the diary of a melodramatic 15-year-old. If you don’t like snark, don’t continue.
But it’s not all bad… You can always count on Winnie the Pooh and Oscar Wilde for a few words of wisdom.

I don’t know about you, but I like really thought provoking quotes. It’s amazing to me how many quotes on there are considered ‘deep’ or even just good.
I love quotes. I really do. But I swear to you if I see one more Live Laugh Love Believe Dream re-pinned I am going to go full on Edgar Allen Poe and spam the quotes page.
I just created an account and feel very lost so far at Pinterest, need to get my daughter to teach me the ropes.
I look at these as just bad poetry. Hehe!
