Everyone has their favourite quotations, generally pithy commentary by well-known public figures. My favourite source for these is Wikiquote, you’ll probably find every quote you know on there, and it can be an interesting distraction to browse around some of the famous people who you respect, admire, or – heck – even despise, and see what they’ve said.
- “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.”
–H. L. Mencken
- “The bigger the humbug, the better people will like it.”
–Phineas Taylor Barnum
- “I’ve had a lovely evening. Unfortunately, this wasn’t it.”
If you have any quotes you think should be added, please add a comment on this page. One thing I do insist on though, is you must have a credible source for the quotation.
