I have collected a great many quotations. Most of them are history-related, in some form or fashion. I started collecting them to sprinkle them on my handouts, syllabi, etc. Many of them come from reading books of quotations in the bathroom. Others come from fiction (especially fantasy and science fiction), history or other commentary that I read. I will post quotations here in batches of five, with no particular rhyme or reason. I just like these quotations, find them thought-provoking (sometimes wrong, but nonetheless very interesting) and decided to write them down so I could have easy access to them. Now I'm going to share them.
