I love quotes on Pinterest. It's one of my favorite activities there. Of course you can never be sure that the quotes come from the people they're attributed to, but it's fun regardless. You find quotes you resonate with, some of them very serious ("Some people come in your life as blessings, others come in your life as lessons"), others mildly amusing yet catchy ("Don't look back. You're not going that way"), while still others really funny in a whole range of ways ("Sorry, I'm not Adele. I don't wish the best for you nor do I want to find someone like you"), many of them witty in one way or another – such as this one by Nietzsche (or so they say), "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
What's surprising is that at least half of the quotes on Pinterest are not the famous or less-than-famous authors' thoughts that you can find on Goodreads, but rather short motivational and inspirational quotes culled from people writing for the Web.
Anyway, this was a short intro into the Quotes category on Pinterest for those who don't do Pinterest. Perhaps I should have also added that you see the quotes as images, with all sorts of fonts, on blank background or juxtaposed to or superimposed on inspiring images (photos of people working out, cartoons of sassy Victorian ladies, beautiful landscapes, etc.). Pinterest is, in fact, image-driven, so people come here for more visual things than words, but things like quotes and nutrition info have found their way onto this platform, combining text and image.
I'll end this intro with one final thought from Pinterest: "I don't always pin, but when I do, I pin 5,000 things in one sitting."
