Quotations can take a life of their own, especially if the are passed around on the web. Few people bother to check if they are true quotations or not. There is the famous quote: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” by Marianne WIlliamson which is often arributed to Nelson Mandela.I try to check quotes, but may have been guilty of of the same crime. In fact, I once made up a “Chinese Proverb” for a promotion.
Pleasing typography and design adds further authority and meaning to the quote. Just type “Jarmusch quote” into Google images and you know what I mean.
Below are some of my favourites. Inspirational posters for the cool. And may be they are based on real quotes after all – if you know the source let me know.
