Quotation Resources

Every site has to have a links page, right? Okay, this has been grossly neglected so far. If you have, or can recommend, a site that will be of interest to Quotes of the Day readers, please drop me a note.

For now, here are a few of our friends in the quote biz:

Dr. Mardy - Mardy Grothe is a friend, subscriber, and author of multiple books featuring quotes.

Duvall's Daily Quote - E-mail only as far as I can tell, one quote with portrait of the author. Request subscription by mail.

Wordcrafters - Bob Kelly has one of the largest printed quotation collections I know of. Sign up for his monthly KellyGram. (Full disclosure: I maintain and host his site.)

Here are the high-traffic major quote sites I'm most likely to turn to when I need to fill in my collection:

Brainy Quote - Clean, well organized site. Leans more toward contemporary sources than I do.

Think Exist - One of the largest quote collections on the internet. Appears to be largely user submissions; there are dupes, formatting problems, and quotes missing words. I'm still wandering around here a couple at least a couple of times a week.

Additional resources worth checking out:

Inspirational Quotes - As the name suggests, famous quotes and sayings to inspire you and start your day on a positive note.

It couldn't be done without Wikipedia:

Support Wikipedia

When researching authors and tracking down questionable quotes, there's no resource more consistently useful than Wikipedia. I may be broke, but it's been a long time since I failed to make a contribution to Wikimedia Foundation every fall.
