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.
