I quote others only in order the better to express myself. •Michel De Montaigne Certain brief sentences are peerless in their ability to give one the feeling that nothing remains to be said. •Jean Rostand I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad author if the line is good.
I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation. •George Bernard Shaw It is better to be quotable than to be honest. •Tom Stoppard Now we sit through Shakespeare in order to recognize the quotations. •Orson Welles Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
