This Instagram Account Is Writing Un-Inspirational Quotes

Advertisement

We’ve all seen a million “inspirational” quotes. They mean well, trying to encourage us to work harder, or achieve something we didn’t think we could, or to simply think positive. And sure, maybe these posters have actually achieved their desired effect once or twice. But how often have we heard a scientist say during a Nobel speech, “I was totally gonna bail on finding the Higgs-Boson particle, but then I noticed the poster of the cat clinging to a branch.” Literally NEVER.

I’m willing to wager that far more often, inspirational posters just make us feel inadequate, reminding us exactly how we’ve fallen short. And that’s the inspiration behind “Uninspirational,” an Instagram account that sends up the idea of “inspirational quotes” with brutally honest ones. If you’re the type to look at an inspirational quote and roll your eyes, this is the place for you.
