I like quoting quotes I find and hear about. I would imagine many do, as often they speak to things we think but are said better by others.
So I decided to do a page just on quotes. And what is more appropriate to be first up than some quotes, about quoting, yes?
More added as I come across those I like.
"A quotation in a speech, article or book is like a rifle in the hands of an infantryman. It speaks with authority." ~ Brendan Behan
"Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors." ~ 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
"I am not young enough to know everything." ~ Oscar Wilde
"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." ~ Albert Einstein
“The best things in life cannot be seen or heard. They must be felt with the heart.” ~ Helen Keller
“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.” ~Sun Tzu, The Art of War
"Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true." ~Richard Bach
"We did not ask for this room or this music.
We were invited in.
Therefore, because the dark surrounds us, let us turn our faces to the light.
Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty.
We have been given pain to be astounded by joy.
We have been given life to deny death.
We did not ask for this room or this music.
But because we are here, let us dance."
