Ten Famous Autocorrected Quotes – Volume One

Suppose a young man with a wild imagination and too much time on his hands went to a greasy spoon diner one evening at 3 AM.   Suppose the same young man grew tired of all the belligerent drunks and lot lizards that usually frequent a greasy spoon diner late at night, so he began to surf the interwebs on his smart phone to occupy his time until his gyro omelette and rye toast were ready to be served.

Suppose that while killing time surfing the interwebs, the young man came across some famous quotes and later stumbled upon the humorous website, Damn You Autocorrect.  Now suppose the imaginative young man with too much time on his hands got to thinking:

“What if all the famous authors, poets, artists, philosophers, and great leaders of history had to use a smart phone to type their inspiring quotes?  Would their quotes sound any less smart?  Would they be any less inspiring?  What would the quotes read like if these great historical figures had to put down their pen and paper, and use the same means of communication that we use today – texting, tweeting, emailing, and other forms of social media?  What if the famous quotes were subject to autocorrect?”

Suppose the young man’s thoughts were to materialize.  I suppose you would get something like this.  Ten famous quotes given the autocorrect treatment.

001 Dalai Lama

003 Helen Keller

002 William Shakespeare

004 Mark Twain

008 William Shakespeare 2

007 Eleanor Roosevelt

005 Thomas Jefferson

009 Oscar Wilde

006 Mother Theresa

010 Martin Luther King Jr

My God.   What have we done.  Modern devices and social media are destroying our love shaft.  Our language!  Destroying r language!

What are some of your favorite famous quotes?  Leave them in the comments section below (140 characters or less, JK).  I’m a big fan of paying homage to the greats and I would love to hear them if you wouldn’t mind sharing.  Much obliged.

  1. I like the fact that the quotes from no idol of humanity go unpunished, tortured or contorted. My favorite quotes? “No good deed goes unpunished” and “Be careful what you wish for, you might end up getting it.”

    • Those are good ones. I experienced the first one myself just recently. Was working on a movie, left for a week to do food and medical mission trip, came back and they had replaced me! No good deed goes unpunished. Well, I still do good deeds whenever I can. Like twisting and contorting famous quotes. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers.

      • I love mental movies: Wouldn’t it be satisfying to see that movie panned, and get a part in one that makes a splash at the theaters?

  2. This was a good funny post! That’s not Eleanor Roosevelt though. I know that woman; she does an ER re-enactment, in case you want to correct it..

    Thanks for stopping by my little world!

  3. I kind of like or always use the saying or term (hope I say it right) “The grass isn’t always greener on the other side” In other words, “boy if you even think about leaving, you better buy one tall ladder!” :-)

  6. Have you ever thought about writing an ebook or guest authoring on other
    sites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would love
    to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers
    would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel
    free to send me an e-mail.

  7. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed
    to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole
    thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
