Division of article[edit]

I'd like to break this article out into separate articles for some of the publications. It's too long to be readable at the moment, and hopeless to use as a reference for Wikipedia articles - no one will ever find the quote one is referring to. JackyR 00:17, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

This was actually done; but some of the most famous quotes from works given separate pages are usually left on the author's page, to help direct those interested to such quotes and works. I have noted this lack here before, and have done so today, but don’t have time to address it immediately. I might make an attempt at re-adding some of the more notable quoted here within a few days. ~ Kalki·· 18:24, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
