I went on a mission a while back to try to expose just how banal inspirational quotes are. My most successful effort was to add “and shit” to the end of traditional quotations. E.g., “Religion is the opiate of the masses, and shit.” (Marx)

In no way did this motivate people to stop and think about the banality of what they were doing in posting quotes, but it was a lot of fun.

So I’ve put together a third partial list of the “and shit” quotes that I’ve posted on Twitter. (Click here for the first list, and here for the second.)

I always add a comma before the “and shit” to mark the end of the actual quote, whether that comma is actually needed or not.

Enjoy!
