I couldn't find a suitable thread, so I started a 'Quotes' thread
This GBS quote came up on my Instagram feed and I just had to share it:

Some good quotes here:

For example:

Do y’all remember, before the internet, that people thought the cause of stupidity was the lack of access to information? Yeah. It wasn't that.

Quotes.gain this status...who said it, who said it first, who said it best?

Where is it the same as shooting the messenger?

If the courier should not get the blame...should they get the credit?

In the end it is the quote that has value...

Revise.that...it is the interpretation, your interpretation, the group interpretation that puts credence to any given quote in any given moment.

It is our filters, our experiences and the moment...

Each will alter the impact of any quote.

Perhaps that's the value of a good quote, or parable, or whatever: it has levels that can give different meanings to different people and to the same person at different times?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Britney_movement

The Free Britney (or #FreeBritney) movement is a social movement to grant American singer Britney Spears autonomy from her conservatorship, which began in 2008. The movement became popular in 2019, after the emergence of allegations involving Spears's time in a psychiatric facility early in the year. The conservatorship was terminated on November 12, 2021.

Misattributing or even making up quotes can be a lot of fun. There is even a German tabletop game about this.

"How much is the fish?" - Karl Marx

"Love thy neighbour as thyself!" - Kurt Cobain

"It takes a while to realize you're unhappy, but it's worth the effort" - Sigmund Freud

"It's blue light. It turns blue." - Police training manual

"Grub first, then ethics." - McDonalds

(As previously stated, these are incorrect attributions)
