Ethically sourcing your quotes ...

I love quotes - it befits the kind of nerd that I am.
I always have a quotation for everything - it saves original thinking. Dorothy L. Sayers
Yet, each quote gives me something to hang a thought upon. One of my favourites is ...
Quotation, n: The act of repeating erroneously the words of another. Ambrose Bierce
My twitter feed is a mixture of sourced quotes and personal witticisms, some merging without source or form. Each time I work on the next batch, I take the old list, strike those I dislike and add more. 

What quotes do you recall and prefer to share?

  1. My favourite is:
    "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn." from "Future Shock" by Alvin Toffler, 1970; but IIRC they are not his words, he is quoting someone else.
