I like those rules about trimming even famous quotes based on arbitrary rules about the length of the work.

I mean, never mind that no quote site ever has been legally attacked for having too many quotes, this policy is totally needed. Righttttt. Especially when-if you really wanted to-you could just find it in the damn history.

Actually, there was such an attack made and the French Wikiquote was shut down, specifically for having too many quotes from works. The this site was targeted for the same reason, leading to where we are today. See Wikiquote:Village_pump_archive_25#Only_en-Wikiquote_should_be_shut_down_IMHO and the subsequent discussions that follow. ~ UDScott 16:45, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
