Simple English Wikiquote is a place for free quotations. All quotes on pages should have notability or importance, and should have a source.

Types of notable quotes

People articles

Not everything a person says it a notable quote. Quotes by people must have a proper source be given by it. Generally, things quoted in news reports, major public statements (or parts of a statement), and important sayings are notable quotes.

Works articles

If someone wrote something that is notable, it does not always mean that a quote in it is notable (for example, a sentence in Pride and Prejudice is not always notable, unless it has been quoted somewhere outside the book). Generally, things popular in that "fan world" is notable (for example, "May the Force be with you" is popular in the Star Wars world), and things used as common phrases because of the work (for example, "Please, sir, I want some more" from Oliver Twist) are notable quotes.

Discussing not-notable quotes

Articles on non-notable quotes can be talked about in deletion requests or simple talk.
