Those of you who follow me know that I’m fond of adding “and shit” to the end of quotes.

E.g., “Religion is the opiate of the masses, and shit.” (Marx)

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

This time I’ve focused exclusively on quotes from various philosophers.

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.
