quotes the princess insists you remove from your facebook profile

1. "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

Rationale: No offense to Eleanore Roosevelt, but this quote is terrible. It's essentially a string of fluffy, feel-good words devoid of any meaning. The Princess has no tolerance for fluffy, feel-good words unless they, well, MEAN SOMETHING... but these don't. In fact, you could switch around all the fluffy words, and it would still mean BIG FAT NOTHING (yet the Princess suspects that the same ignorant people would still love it). Case and point:
  • "Beauty belongs to those who believe in the dreams of their future."
  • "Belief belongs to those who dream of the beauty of their future."
  • "Dreams belongs to those who believe of the future of their beauty."

2. "To the nights we'll never remember with the friends we'll never forget."
Rationale: This is not insightful or original. In fact, it seems like an attempt to cutesy those unoriginal nights where the quoter gets blackout drunk and all the other friends are forced to take care of her. Is this something to be celebrated? The princess thinks not, and she thinks the quoter's friends would agree. Inevitably, this girl also has the following Coco Chanel quote on her profile: "A girl must be two things: classy and fabulous." Surely this irony is obvious enough that it needs no explanation.

3. "Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot..." (or is it hott?)

Rationale: The princess appreciates the heart of this thought (dating standards), but this is just way too annoying. So her verdict is as follows: standards, yes; posting them in sing-song rhyme on facebook once you are over the age of 13, NO.
