A list of quotes is at at the same time normal and special. Sometimes, we do not agree with the people who say the quotes and what they believe. The people who say quotes are very different, but they all take a lot of imortant information and make it into a good sentence or two.

The people who say quotes do a lot of things to us when we read the quotes. The quotes make us want to find out more about the people who say them. They make us want to think about our lives. Sometimes they make us happy. Sometimes they just make us feel good about the words the speakers use and how they use those words. Quotes will always be around to tell others about us. They will always show the most interesting parts of our world. Quotes are also good things to pass down to our children. Then they will keep making people feel good.

What is Wikiquote?

Wikiquote aims to be an accurate and comprehensive collection of important quotations.

  • Accurate: Wikiquote aims for accuracy. Where possible, we try to cite sources: preferably those in which the quotation first appears, otherwise notable attribution of the quotations. We try to find those quotes which are misattributed, clearly label them and research how the misattribution came about.
  • Comprehensive: Wikiquote aims to have quotes from many different people, literary works, films, memorials, epitaphs and so on.
  • Notable: We limit ourselves to quotations which are notable. A quotation can be notable either because it has achieved fame by itself, but more usually because it was said by someone notable, or appeared in a notable work.
  • Quotations: Wikiquote is a collection of quotations. While, for completeness, articles should have a short introduction of the topic or source, the primary goal is to include quotations.
