Pinterest is the go‐to place for five types of online media: recipes, DIY projects, fitspo, accessible street‐style photos and inspirational quotes.

Today, we are most concerned with the hugely influential social network’s cottage industry of quotes. Most of these quotes are unattributed and have no apparent origin, appearing to have simply bubbled up from Pinterest’s feel‐good and girly collective unconscious. Some are eye‐roll‐inducing, while others are actually inspirational, in an Oprah‐endorsed aphorism kind of way.

So here are 25 of the site’s most popular recent inspirational quotes. Replacing cheerful cats and babies dressed like grownups with twee typography and on‐trend graphic design, these aren’t your school nurse’s inspirational quotes. And if nothing else, they might be handy for relieving Pinterest‐induced lifestyle FOMO.
