 Q - Quotations

 

Quotations: Citations of texts by someone that one considers interesting for some reason.

This Philosophical Dictionary eventually will contain a fairly substantive list of quotations I like, for various reasons, mostly but not exclusively based on the literature listed below, that contains selections by others based on their reading, one suspects also in part from books of quotation.

They are contained in their own files by letter and subject. The files are linked. By the way: The fact that I quote something or someone does not necessarily mean that I agree with the quotation or like the person quoted or admire his ideas.


New:

There now is a simple quotation-server available that serves - at present - 564 quotations randomly, 1 at the time. It is written in Javascript and it contains all the script and quotations in one html-file:

The quotes were all taken from the section Quotations.
