Our culture is so misguided we hear this guy string random phrases together and call it profound. Here's the first MM quote a simple google search netted:
"There's a man I met 20 years ago. He escaped Russia. He was not even a carpenter, built a 17-foot boat and sailed across the Atlantic for decades he held the world record for smallest vessel single-man sailed across the Atlantic. He told me this, he said, 'A genius can be anybody he wants to, but a genius is always one person at a time.' So to that I say, that's what we get to do, isn't it? One man, one woman, one human. At a time. When we do it well. Just keep doing that. Just keep living."- Matthew McConaughey
What? Is that supposed to mean something? Anything? I thought Marilyn Monroe quotes haunting Pinterest were bad, but at least she's dead. This guy could have decades yet to infect us with this brand of communicating. Watch, I can do it, too.
"It's just, it's just about being amazing. If you walk, you will be amazing. If you just keep walking. You'll get somewhere. Utah. Enlightenment. Applebee's. Those all start with vowels. So that's meaningful. Start when you're a baby. And never stop. Just keep walking." -Me, turning off my brain
Or how about this gem?
"A man should always have his diary on him. That way he's guaranteed to always have something incredible to read." -Matthew McConaughey
That's right, friends!
And that is why I forgive you if you pronounce the word 'lawyer' differently than I do.
Now- I want to hear you comment like McConaughey. All you do. Is break up what should be a normal sentence. Into pieces. Use periods. With abandon.
Oh! Or tell me what celebrity is quoted hither and yon and propped up as some kind of shaman that drives you craaaaazy. Because I can't be the only one who puts on sackcloth and ashes every time she sees an actor used as True North on people's life compass, right?
