The B-Movie Gimmick From The '60s (That We Want Back)

Having the right thing to say at the right time is one of life’s greatest skills and its biggest mysteries. How do some people come up with the perfect line at the perfect time? This ability doesn’t seem to be restricted to the best among us: Indeed, a few of history's most despicable figures have uttered some incredibly inspirational things. 

This collection of quotes will motivate you with whatever you're working on. Some originate from the most terrible people in history, while others are just from some remarkable celebs. They're here to make you realize: just because someone may be called a dunce in certain contexts, or may have done bad things–they can still drop some awesome lines.

Don’t be surprised if some of the sources of these quotes shock or surprise you and if you uncover any nuggets of motivation to change the way you perceive the world.

There will always be kickass quotes throughout the annals of time. Terrifying men and women produce words that encourage others to do great things or strike terror in the hearts of others.

However, some of the most inspiring words come from the most unlikely sources. No one would be able to tell the difference between these and a photograph of Teddy Roosevelt, a cartoon fish or a book by Sun Tzu.
