This project resulted from years of ripping quotations from newspapers and magazines, usually on airplanes where my seatmates assumed I was stealing order forms for advertising pins or ever-smaller PowerPoint projectors. You are free to browse for enjoyment or use the quotations as you like, subject to the Fair Use doctrine, of course . Click on the download below.
If I provided a citation, would you really look it up? OK, then stop complaining. –James D. Gordon, III
Because this project would never count toward tenure, I made no effort to provide citations or annotations, although if I happened to know the purported author, I said so. If you really need a citation, that's why God invented Google. I cannot guarantee the quotees actually said the thing, but I am absolutely positive someone claimed the quotee said it. However, it is also possible the claimant merely wished the quotee said it.
I hope you enjoy these quotations. If you have favorites which aren't included, I am grateful for all contributions.
I proposed to bring a bill into Parliament to deprive an author who publishes a book without an index of the privilege of copyright, and, moreover to subject him for his offence to a pecuniary penalty. –Lord John Campbell
