In Handy Tips, we find ways to improve your life and make it easier and explain why these tips work. Today, we will tell you about an instruction with the help of which you can come up with a wise quote that the world has never seen before.
Some people broadcast their mood on social media platforms exclusively with the help of inspiring quotes by famous people. As the years go by, there are fewer and fewer quotes left, and people still really want to brag about their wittiness. We found a way out of this situation and created an instruction with the help of which you can come up with a wise quote that the world has never seen before.
1. Decide on the authors
Remarque, Statham, and Einstein are too popular. And so are their quotes, including fake ones. If you take real people, it is better not to consider those who are well known to ordinary people, like Steinbeck, Ralph Emerson, and Henry Thoreau.
The Roman popes of the Middle Ages will also do – no one knows exactly what they said there anyway, but it sounds impressive. Or better yet put Christopher P. Myers (traveler, writer, famous chess player, just invented by us) as the author.
The easiest way to create your own quote is to change a famous quote, especially if it doesn't have a specific author.
For example: “Only after losing something do you begin to realize how much you didn't need it.” – Christopher P. Myers.
2. The main consumers of wise quotes are girls from Instagram
Therefore, the revised quote should praise women and oblige men to take action. For example, let's take a real quote by John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”
And now, let’s make a quote out of it that will bring you 100 thousand likes, reposts, and admiration of thousands of women: “Don't ask what your woman can do for you. Ask what you can do for your woman.” – Christopher P. Myers.
3. Take simple facts and add metaphors to them
For example, obviously, people love a positive attitude towards themselves. If you add a metaphor to it, you get a good quote. For instance, Takeshi Kitano once said that a woman is like a snowdrop because even a little warmth makes her blossom. However, it is better not to attribute quotes to living celebrities and those from whose heirs you can claim for using the celebrity's name. Therefore, let it be Sifudo Tyahan – a non-existent poet, the inventor of tuna rolls.
A small change in metaphor can change the plot, but retain the laudatory meaning.
For example: “A woman is like Schlumbergera – the cold only makes her blossom.” – Pope Sebastian XVII.
4. Most of the quotes are complaints in disguise
Take a phenomenon that you don't like and write what you would like instead of it. For example: “A real leader does not raise his voice. A real leader raises wages.“ – Christopher P. Myers. If you don't want to be straightforward, you can add an oriental flavor to the quote.
For example: “A wise ruler avoids the poison of the most dangerous snake – irritation, but remembers whether his subjects have enough rice for the rainy season.” – Laozi, the unwritten.
