Quotations quotes

Samuel Johnson
He is a benefactor of mankind who contracts the great rules of life into short sentences, that may be easily impressed on the memory, and so recur habitually to the mind.

Yossi Klein Halevi
But theological change happens though selective quoting. Every religious person does it: You quote those verses that resonate with your own religious insights and ignore or reinterpret those that undermine your certainties. Selective quoting isn't just legitimate, but essential: Religions evolve through shifts in selective quoting.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Stay at home in your mind. Don't recite other people's opinions. I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.

Robert Chapman
A quotation, like a pun, should come unsought, and then be welcomed only for some propriety of felicity justifying the intrusion.

Mark Twain
What a good thing Adam had. When he said a good thing he knew nobody had said it before.

Rupert Hart-Davis
It's such a pleasure to write down splendid words - almost as though one were inventing them.

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

Benjamin Disraeli
When we would prepare the mind by a forcible appeal, and opening quotation is a symphony precluding on the chords those tones we are about to harmonize.
