The Goldberg quote is the POV of Goldberg, the Hitler quotes are the POV of Hitler. All are social justice related. All are appropriate for this page. --2001:8003:412B:6300:E006:F7A5:ADCB:76BA 08:02, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

WQ:NPOV specifies "there are limits to which points of view are worth mentioning, and this can be an area of conflict." Which quotes are included is determined by consensus. ~ Peter1c (talk) 18:18, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

I agree, and note that it also says "Quotations included in Wikiquote do not need to conform to NPOV, as they are reflections of the point-of-view of the quoted individual". A critical quote from a mainstream conservative belongs on the page. The ravings of a genocidal maniac do not. DougHill (talk) 20:04, 3 December 2019 (UTC)
The source was not there, I addded the correct source. Rupert Loup 20:18, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

D.R. Bhandari[edit]

@Peter1c: what do you mean by "no evidence of notability" on D.R. Bhandari? Rupert Loup 20:13, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi User:Rupert Loup, I meant there was no link to Wikipedia article for the source of the quote. Also, it was unclear if cited source is a peer-reviewed publication. This quote also describes the view of Plato, and it would be better to quote Plato's views directly. For quotes like this, that describe the view of a notable figure like Plato, it is helpful if the description comes from a highly notable source. If there's no Wikipedia article on this author, I would argue that he may not be notable enough to justify the inclusion of this kind of quote. Does this make sense? I am enjoying working together with you on Wikiquote, and of course if you feel strongly about this quote I will not insist on my position. Best regards, ~ Peter1c (talk) 21:33, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

The quote is been cited in Social justice#History, it meets ((w|WP:RS}} standars and was republished by the Boston University. I agree with that the original statement of Plato would be better, but given that it's not in the article yet I don't see the reason for the deletion. I'm deleting the image though since I concur with that it hasn't enough weight. I also enjoy working with you and I'm grateful for your work here. Rupert Loup 23:16, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
I think that I agree with you, although his works can be found and are cited by reliable sources, there is almost no information about him. I will going to revert my edit now. Rupert Loup 17:31, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

Excessive obscure quotes and pov pushing[edit]

These quotes

Amitabh Behar, as quoted in Wealth of India's richest 1% more than 4-times of total for 70% poorest: Oxfam, Livemint
(who is of doubtful notability, he has no wikipedia page) were recently added , the quotes are obscure and only published once in a news blog. (Livemeint blog, no wikipedia page about Livemint)

The quote is also in about 10 other wikiquote articles.

This is a high level article. This article should have more quotes from books, rather than websites or newspapers, that have timeless quotability. --დამოკიდებულება (talk) 10:25, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
