Who said it: Kim Kardashian or someone truly wise?

The quiz that will make you re-evaluate everything you thought you knew about Kim Kardashian. 

Some say Kim Kardashian‘s new book Selfish is just a pile of photos of a really self-obsessed person compiled into a glossy hard cover book by a publishing company hungry for some Kardashian Kash.

Others say it’s the work of a post-modern feminist genius (not very many, admittedly).

In the book, Kim K offers the kind of insight you just can’t give when your every move is filmed for your long-running reality show, such as, “I love that I have thousands of pics.”

And: “Thailand – I don’t think I’ve ever taken as many selfies as I did in Thailand. It’s one of the prettiest places I’ve ever traveled to!”

But you know what, sometimes she comes out with some really smart sounding shit too. Not always, but sometimes.

In honour of those times when she does sound smart, we decided to make a quiz. Can you guess the Kim Kardashian quote from the other, seemingly more ‘intelligent’ people like Shakespeare and Charlotte Bronte?

Don’t write Kimmy K off just because she LOVES “bikini shots”. That girl’s got some wisdom.
