All the quotes you need to quote. This is kind of an extention of Sullivan's previous post. This one is my favorite.
  • Nice site...thanks for the link. I've been looking for a good quote site for a while to fill some gaps in a presentation I'm doing and it seems I always end up in a downward spiral of popups and lame sites. I'm hoping this is the direction that Wikiquote is heading.
  • If you want to get a little more classical. there's always Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, an old friend of mine.
  • Excellent, Weezel, thanks.
  • Bizarre - only 10 mins ago I was trying to find out who said "publish and be damned" and then I turn to Monkeyfilter and here's a quotes database. cool! But you can't search by quote - only by person ... Have bookmarked this and Bartlett's though - thanks
  • Also, Bartleby is a great all-around resource for quotes. It includes Bartlett's, but you can also search through reference, verse, fiction, and non-fiction or all of them at once. I especially like the Shakespeare search, and the poetry is wonderful, I like to browse the different categories just for good reading. It's also word searchable, for instance "publish and be damned" appears to be by Jacob Bronowski (1908-1974), British scientist. :) What I like about yours, though, Weezel, is the easy links to quotes by topic. Sometimes word searching on Bartleby is hard to get the right topic, so thanks, I'll be bookmarking your site too!
