About quotes

An apt quotation is like a lamp which flings its light over the whole sentence.Letitia Landon

A quote (or "quotation") is usually a short text - perhaps one or two sentences - written or spoken by one (usually famous) person and often repeated or at least known by others. Every language has its famous quotes, and they range from highly amusing to deadly serious. Often they express a deep truth in a short, clever way - even the amusing ones.
