Quotations quotes

Misquotation is, in fact, the pride and privilege of the learned. A widely-read man never quotes accurately, for the rather obvious reason that he has read too widely.

- Pearson, Hesketh

In quoting of books, quote such authors as are usually read; others you may read for your own satisfaction, but not name them.

- Selden, John

Quotations in my work are like wayside robbers who leap out armed and relieve the stroller of his conviction.

- Benjamin, Walter

The most annoying trait of Right-Wing Outlaws in general is a lazy incuriosity about the real world. They know their lines, they're sure who the good guys and the bad guys are. Therefore they view the passing world as a kind of animated "Bartlett's Quotations" - that is, as handy source material with which to illustrate, rather than challenge, preconceived views.

- James Fallows

I not only use all the brains I have but all I can borrow.

- Wilson, Woodrow T.

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.

- Marlene Dietrich

Next to the originator of a good sentence is the first quoter of it. I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our best thoughts come from others.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Next to the originator of a good sentence is the first quoter of it.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quotations (such as have point and lack triteness) from the great old authors are an act of reverence on the part of the quoter, and a blessing to a public grown superficial and external.

- Louise Guiney

I pick my favorite quotation and store them in my mind as ready armor, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence.

- Burns, Robert

There is not less wit nor less invention in applying rightly a thought one finds in a book, than in being the first author of that thought.

- Pierre Bayle

Fidelity to the subject's thought and to his characteristic way of expressing himself is the sine qua non of journalistic quotation.

- Malcolm, Janet

I never have found the perfect quote. At best I have been able to find a string of quotations which merely circle the ineffable idea I seek to express.

- Caldwell O'Keefe

A book that furnishes no quotations is no book -- it is a plaything.

- Peacock, Thomas Love

Every quotation contributes something to the stability or enlargement of the language.

- Samuel Johnson

The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages is preserved into perpetuity by a nation's proverbs, fables, folk sayings and quotations.

- William Feather

People who like quotations love meaningless generalizations.

- Graham Greene

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

- Oscar Wilde
