Quotations
I hate quotations.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Write a wise saying and your name will live forever.

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
We rarely quote nowadays to appeal to authority... though we quote sometimes to display our sapience and erudition. Some authors we quote against. Some we quote not at all, offering them our scrupulous avoidance, and so make them part of our white mythology. Other authors we constantly invoke, chanting their names in cerebral rituals of propitiation or ancestor worship.

- Hassan, Ihab
Next to being witty yourself, the best thing is being able to quote another's wit.

- Bovee, Christian Nevell
Some for renown, on scraps of learning dote, And think they grow immortal as they quote.

- Edward Young
A short saying oft contains much wisdom.

- Sophocles
The point of quotations is that one can use another's words to be insulting.

- Amanda Cross
A book that furnishes no quotations is, me judice, no book—it is a plaything.

- Thomas Love Peacock
Stronger than an army is a quotation whose time has come.

- Gates, W. I. E.
I didn't really say everything I said.

- Yogi Berra
Quotations are useful in periods of ignorance or obscurantist beliefs.

- Debord, Guy
A book of quotations . . . can never be complete.

- Robert M. Hamilton
Immortality. I notice that as soon as writers broach this question they begin to quote. I hate quotation. Tell me what you know.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I must claim the quoter's privilege of giving only as much of the text as will suit my purpose, said Tan-Chun. If I told you how it went on, I should end up by contradicting myself!

- Cao Xueqin
People who like quotations love meaningless generalizations.

- Graham Greene
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
I am reminded of the professor who, in his declining hours, was asked by his devoted pupils for his final counsel. He replied,'Verify your quotations.'

- Sir Winston Churchill
Too much traffic with a quotation book begets a conviction of ignorance in a sensitive reader. Not only is there a mass of quotable stuff he never quotes, but an even vaster realm of which he has never heard.

- Davies, Robertson
At twilight, nature is not without loveliness, though perhaps its chief use is to illustrate quotations from the poets.

- Oscar Wilde
