Hello. Can you please tell me, what was wrong with the way I originally formatted the page? Eon 18:57, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
We discourage the grouping of quotes by subject, instead sorting them in chronological order. Although in many cases some sort of grouping may be obvious, there may also be times when it is not so obvious and such grouping may reflect a user's point of view. It may also make it harder for someone to find a specific quote if unsure of how they are grouped. This topic has been discussed before and the consensus was that we should not divide quotes by theme because it is inherently POV and people may have different ideas about what theme or subject a given quote belongs to. ~ UDScott 19:07, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Those pages should be changed as well. For some background on this subject, refer to the following: Talk:Simon Conway Morris or Wikiquote:Village_pump#Subdivisions_of_sourced_quotes_by_theme. I'm sure there are other discussions even further back on this topic. The bottom line to the discussions is that since separating quotes by topic or theme is something that each user might do differently, it reflects that person's point of view. The consensus is that the best way to structure the pages is to have the quotes listed chronologically since this results in a consistent way of presenting them. I will post this topic on Village Pump again to solicit some more thoughts on the matter. ~ UDScott 12:33, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
