Quotations
An epigram often flashes light into regions where reason shines but dimly.

- Edwin P. Whipple
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
The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation.

- Benjamin Disraeli
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
He wrapped himself in quotations -- as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.

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

- Bovee, Christian Nevell
One has to secrete a jelly in which to slip quotations down people's throats --and one always secretes too much jelly.

- Woolf, Virginia
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
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
The profoundest thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until an equal mind and heart finds and publishes it.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool.

- Roux, Joseph
Quotation, n: The act of repeating erroneously the words of another.

- Ambrose Bierce
Quotation... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised; the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous; the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium.

- Fowler, Henry W.
Be careful -- with quotations, you can damn anything.

- Andre Malraux
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.

- Sir Winston Churchill
A book of quotations . . . can never be complete.

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

- Amanda Cross
He wrapped himself in quotations- as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.

- Rudyard Kipling
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
