Is there a name for someone who takes inspiration and other quotes too seriously or to heart?

  • Maybe sappy or simpy?

    Clearly the word that applies to someone who takes inspirational quotes seriously is inspired. And someone who takes them too seriously is overinspired.

    "suggestible" may fit, but don't specifically refers to quotes.

Try credulous. Someone who is credulous will believe anything anyone wants him to believe.


I'd say such a person is susceptible or impressionable.


Likely or liable to be influenced or harmed by a particular thing:
'patients with liver disease may be susceptible to infection'


Easily influenced:
'a girl of eighteen is highly impressionable'

No direct connotation with quotes, though.
