Quote Pioneers

Persevere and get it done.
Nurul H.
Originally published in 2001, Quotesography is one of the oldest and most established quotation sites on the web. Our site was built from scratch into the behemoth it is today. In the beginning, we used library books to enter famous quotations by hand. Armed with eyedrops and comfy wrist-rests at our computers, we typed, and typed, and typed! Today, you can enjoy the fruits of our labors; we are a shining example of the little engine that could.

Our Credo

Life itself is a quotation.
Eni S.
We believe access to the spoken word gives us a unique glimpse into the historic, political and cultural history of the world we share. Further, we believe that inherent in these quotations lies the essence of the individuals we have quoted; their interests, belief system, comments and ideas are captured in time to benefit our generation and the next.

100% Real People

The authentic self is the soul made visible.
Sarah B.
When you search the pages of Quotesography , you will find quotations spoken by real people - not characters from popular plays, books or movies. If you discover an author who is a character, and not a real human being, let us know and we will make the correction.

Brainy, or Not!

Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one.
E. B. White
Our quotations and quote collections have motivated, inspired and informed millions, but not all of our quotes are 'brainy'. We include 'non-brainy' quotes because they entertain or add to our cultural conversation. While they may be neither intelligent, amusing or otherwise clever, the person quoted had something to say that mattered to them - and for this reason, their words matters to us. If Jennifer Aniston speaks about something as inane as her hair, we find this culturally relevant: the actress is famous for her seeming inability to have a bad hair day.
