  • fajas colombianas

    Very nice presentations of quotes there mate. Thanks for the share.

  • Captain Meh

    Meh. Others’ quotes, made to look like others’ art. Which part was yours?

    • Kates

      Although that might seem a little closed minded, I like your point.

    • Kates

      Eh, actually, I take it back because I really appreciate this page and the time taken to put it all together.

  • TheGreatMikesby

    Really great stuff. Inspiration with great design. The best one posted so far. I can’t get enough!

  • lokijki | Terrifying Monsters

  • By Golly!

    This was a great assortment of inspiration for the new year! The older typographic styles were a treat as well. Thanks!

  • troublemaker85

    Some quotes are great but I really don’t think that being gay is a sin!
    Is that what the picture does mean? If yes, that would be the worst quote I have ever read.

    • randomkid

      No, the picture was showing the letters “A” and “S” as being taken from the picture. The new message reads: “Being gay is in.”

    • Kailey

      No no the original quote is “Being gay is a sin” but they took the “a” and the “s” in “sin, so it said “Being gay is in.”

  • Réjean Lévesque

    I like the quotations and the way they are presented. I love quotations. I have a blog on them called The Frictionary; you might want to visit and maybe find something to use… (

  • Togrul

  • Dennis

    Great quotations. They really make you think. The typography that was used in each quotation makes the quotations pop out and become alive.

  • Dan

    I’m not being funny but the gay one ruined this whole page for me. It’s just tacky, and the google one didn’t do much for me either. Remove? You would do well to.

    • Kris

      Yes. Being gay is nothing to be proud of. Its just a regrettable aberration. If it were to be Really in, it would soon die out.

      • Gwyneth

        My my, aren’t we bigoted?

  • sam

    they pretty much all say “work hard”

  • Araucaria

    That quotation attributed to George Eliot does not occur anywhere in her published work, and was almost certainly never said by her. It is a venerable misattribution, though, having appeared as early as 1881 as an entry in a “Gems from George Eliot” contest in a New York magazine, “The Literary News”.

  • Angie

    Wow. He ^ thinks way too much. Nice job, thank you for the quotes.

    Most of these quotes don’t inspire me. BUT, the design work IS good. For me, the question then is this: “Is it worth doing if it wasn’t worth saying?”
