Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

Some men’s words [we] remember so well that [we] must often use them to express [our] thought. Yes, because [we] perceive that we have heard the same truth, but they have heard it better (Ralph Waldo Emerson). Hence, “when a thing has been said and well said, have no scruple; take it and copy it” (Anatole France). Besides, “quotation is the highest compliment you can pay to an author”  (Samuel Johnson).
