I love words — everything about them. Their sounds, history, the way they change meaning over time, you name it. And out of that love grew my love for just the right words put together in just the right way, which led to collecting quotations.
It isn’t unusual for people to have little random quotations displayed on their web sites, but how many have nearly a thousand in their databases, with no replication? I want to go back through and add sources for all of them, as a way of fact-checking every one.1 My original plugin didn’t have a sources field, but I just upgraded to one that does.
I’ve honestly considered trying to develop my own quotations application to track my collection, because I’ve got far more than the ones that are on this web site (so far). It may finally be what drives me into programming. If anyone knows of a good product that already exists to do that, I’d be tickled to know about it. The ideal application would have a mobile app to go with it, so the user could look up or add quotations on the go.
For other quote freaks like me, here are a few links to quotation sites, and some alternate ways to access my little collection.
