Repeats[edit]

There are a lot of repeated quotes on this page. Many of the quotes under attributed are from one of his books, and have already been placed under the appropriate heading. I didn't know if there was a reason for this so I didn't want to edit anything without asking about it first. 4.243.36.202 01:44, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Erm, yeah. I noticed that, too. If I get time, I'll fix some of them; a lot of them that are unsourced actually come from JLS, Illusions, The Bridge Across Forever, and One. ...Which means that they mostly have areas on this page, they just aren't there yet...--129.71.94.254 19:45, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Just realized that I have time now. I placed as many as I could into the correct headings. But, I still didn't eliminate the duplicates. Erm, from the looks of it, should the Messiah's Handbook even have a heading (?) because it doesn't have any unique quotes; all of them were also in Illusions. Other than that, can somebody pull the year for One? --129.71.94.254 19:55, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm the same person as the last two edits. I removed JLS from this page: It has its own page with the same quotes. Also removed The Messiah's Handbook: All the quotes went to Illusions, but maybe I should have done it the other way around? Or maybe Illusions should have its own page? I'm not entirely sure here, so if anyone would like to help, I'll gladly accept it. Email me, or something. Oh, yeah, I also removed the repeated quotes, or, at least, the ones I found. --Copb.phoenix 20:13, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

This is the last time I'm editing today. I've practically spammed both the changelog and the discussion page. I removed all the remaining redundant quotes, fixed a few grammatical errors, standarized the formatting partway, and alphabetized quotes within sub sections. Oh, and found the earliest date for One possible. So, yeah, I'm done for today.

Unsourced[edit]

Wikiquote no longer allows unsourced quotations, and they are in process of being removed from our pages (see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations); but if you can provide a reliable, precise and verifiable source for any quote on this list please move it to Richard Bach. --Antiquary 18:30, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Just yesterday I found that magical Someone is the face we see in the mirror: It's us and our homemade masks.
