Hello, I am an "armchair quotographer", who likes to delve into finding the source of quotes, terms, and phrases, with my main tool being Google Books & Google News Archives. You can find some of the work I have done in tracking down quotes (and creating my own) at my Blog.

Quotes I have Researched[edit]

Verified Quotes[edit]

The following are quotes that I have sourced or otherwise researched and added to Wikiquote:

  • Think about every problem, every challenge, we face. The solution to each starts with education.

Apocryphal Quotes[edit]

  • Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right.
    • An apocryphal quote often attributed to Henry Ford.
  • Teaching is the highest form of understanding
    • A likely apocryphal quote often attributed to Aristotle

Research on the Origin of Coined Words and Phrases[edit]

  • "Quotology"
    • Coined by William S. Walsh in 1901. Although it should be noted that William S. Walsh did not especially like the coined term.
  • "Free Culture"
    • The contemporary meaning was coined by Lawrence Lessig, although it was used as an agricultural term in the 1800's, and also was a term once used by Kant (or at least a translation of Kant).
