Quotes #48 by Alpner Quotes #48 by Alpner
Quotes #48 | “I find reading poetry really inspires me to not read poetry.”

New collection:
DA: [link]
NEW Facebook : [link]


The old "finished" collection
DA: [link]
Facebook: [link]

About the quotes:
1.) I don't own any of the quotes in my collection (unless it's stated otherwise);
2.) Credit is given if the ORIGINAL author of the quote is known;
3.) Even if they are racist, sexist, etc. there is no offense intended; They are made strictly with entertaining purposes;
4.) I don't own any (copyrights), so you can use them however you want them;
5.) Possibly there are some grammar mistakes and it would be much appreciated, if you notice them, to let me know, so I can fix them asap;

Am I the only one who thinks the structure of the sentence is a bit off?
This would have made more sense to me:
"Reading poetry really inspires me not to read poetry." OR
"I find reading poetry really inspiring; as it inspires me not to read poetry".

And for all those who find this offensive, it is not something to be taken seriously. I love poetry but I also appreciate someone who is expressing himself (Its not out rightly offensive anyway) . And "creative" self expression gets extra points.

Yeah, I agree, it didn't have the same "zing" as the others. Maybe because he finds poetry so uninspiring? LOL

Oh seriously, you dont simply write these kinds of things. This might be quite offensive for people who like reading. Dude, post a sentence IF it's funny or inspirational, not this. This is crap.

One does not simply write these things...

People who don't like a certain style of literature generally don't like reading it, and trying to read it only would make them dislike it more. How is that offensive?

Its a douchebag thing to say. Its ok not to like reading, i dont like it myself, but I'm ashamed of it and being dumb isnt something to brag about imo. The world is quite full of people who despise culture already, it's not cool to make a poster and advertise that.
Also, imagine it sai *insert your favorite type of art here* instead of poetry. I wouldn't laugh.

You're getting offended by someone sarcastically saying they don't like poetry?
And how is it dumb?
I can imagine any form of art inserted here and it would be funny. Yeah, it probably wouldn't be as funny, but it's an opinion. Someone will always disagree with you and someone will always be stupid, but pointing out any certain uninteresting instance is more or less petty and needless.

It's an opinion, so I wrote it down. I don't find it funny, interesting, inspirational or anything of use, on the contrary; good if you do.

Well they shouldn't, people get offended by alot of things nowdays. What you want is censorship, it's funny how it's ok to draw Jesus, Mohammed and different political figures in embarrassing or stupid situations. Thats fun, but when it's something you like, it's not fun anymore. If you don't like the quote, move on? why waste time on it?

If you don't like my comment move on too. Same thing. Opinions are to be had, I'm sorry if it bothers. I'm not that offended since I don't even like peotry, I just find out of place a mocking comment about a type of art on a website made for praising art.

Poetry can be incredible. You're missing out on a whole world of art if you think this way.

Well, I COULD have not taken it seriously and gone "blah blah this isn't art and doesn't belong on the front page", but that's pretty obvious.

What's actually mind blowing is that you cared enough about my comment to make a snarky remark about it and subtly insult my intelligence. Not very nice!

Depends on the poetry, some are really good/inspiring/interesting and some leaves you like (._.)
