“Motivational and inspirational quotes can be great tools to help keep you on a chosen path, or keep you out of trouble, or help you change unproductive habits,” Sophia Dembling wrote me, when discussing this new blog idea. And I agree.

But sometimes motivational quotes are really no more than a bunch of words strung together that sound good — but steer you wrong.

Better Living Through Pithy Quotes will share and break down motivational quotes — the good, the bad, the brilliant and the inane — providing ways to use them or reasons to ignore them.

Sophia Dembling left the daily newspapers in 1994 to freelance and immediately took to the solitary lifestyle of the freelance writer. She previously authored the Psych Central blog, Real World Research. You can learn more about her here.
