The Problem with “Motivational” Quotes

We’ve all seen them. The ones that tell you to use your time more wisely and that you’ll regret not starting (whatever it is you’re meant to be starting) today because the time will pass anyway.

In the age of social media and the 24-hour news cycle, it’s easy for celebrities to express their opinions and political views, and for their followers and fans to keep up-to-date on their lives and goings-on from a personal view; without the stalkerish eyes and vibes of paparazzi.
