Motivational quotes are often genuinely motivational. Sometimes they're silly, however, and sometimes I just find them depressing when they seek to inspire me to an attitude I can't seem to muster.
One time, a number of years ago, I was making my first visit to the office of a mental health professional. The receptionists desk had a page-a-day calendar from the manufacturer of a psychiatric medication. I don't remember the quote on the page, but I've always remembered it as "Stride Confidently Into Your Glorious Future!"
I chuckled to myself with an ironic, mirthless chuckle. I called the quote to the receptionist's attention and said, "If I could do that, I wouldn't be here!"
