What Is Quotationize
The only quotation resource site where all the quotes* are LINKED to authoritative sources.
I do not just cite the sources, but link every single quotation to the proper authoritative sources.
If I have the physical sources (from books or magazines), I would include images of the quotes below the text.
When I say ‘proper authoritative sources‘, I mean from the sites where the actual person who wrote or uttered those words.
By clicking on the link below each quotation, you can actually see the quote straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.
I personally take the time to search them out from various avenues, including Google Books search, Amazon site, e-books from Google search results, past newspapers from Google News Archive Search.
They are not taken from those quotation compilation books, or even from Wikiquote or Reader’s Digest. I found them not to be completely reliable.
All published quotations with links and accompanied quote images are definitely authentic. You can use or share them without reservation or apprehension.
If there is any quotation which I find it to be insightful, but I could not locate its proper source, I may include it here, but it will be attributed it to “Unknown” or “Unverified“.
Quotationize only publishes quotations with life-affirming messages. Be they humorous or profound.
I do not include just any utterance, remark or passing comment made by personalities or celebrities.
No doubt there are already countless quotation websites, but I cannot count on them for reliability and authenticity.
I found that most of them are full of wrongly-attributed quotes and even fake ones.
They do not cite the sources of the quotes. They just want to boast of having the most number of quotations (or rather misquotations). To the extent of even publishing the same quote twice on the same page!
The main purpose of Quotationize is to share my selection of verified authentic quotations with others.
I find many quotes, sayings, quips, maxims, proverbs, precepts, aphorisms, epigrams, catch phrases are filled with nuggets of wisdom nestled within these strings of words.
I only feature selected meaningful quotations which can offer you consolation, encouragement or show you a clear-eyed perspective, so that you can change your life for the better.
Those selected quotations must satisfied these criteria:
* Easy to understand
Quotations Must Be User-Friendly
All quotations here are carefully and stringently picked, to ensure that they are user-friendly.
So that folks can quote them in their daily conversations or in their written work.
Misquoted, Unverified, Unsourced And Fake Quotes
It is sad to note that there are tons of mis-attributed, unsourced and unverified quotations, and even bogus or fake quotes published in books, magazines and the many old established websites.
Every attempt is make to ensure all quotations published here are verified authentic.
As I have mentioned above, all quotes here are LINKED to authoritative sources.
Note: I’m still in the midst of correcting and cleaning up all those misquotes, fake quotations and contextomies (misquoting someone by shortening the quotation or by leaving out surrounding words or sentences that would place the quotation in context).
