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. Henry Fowler

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

One must be a wise reader to quote wisely and well. Amos Bronson Alcott

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. Samuel Johnson

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

Good sayings are like pearls strung together. Chinese Proverb

Time is of of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh today as when they first passed through their authors' minds ages ago. Samuel Smiles
