About Wikiquote[edit]

Wikiquote is a cooperation to establish a free online compendium. With its main focus on people and notable works, my priorities are on theme's and scientists. I think thematic articles are indispensable in constructing a comprehensive online compendium: These articles offer a collection of quotes, complementary to corresponding Wikipedia articles, and inform about the people and notable works present at Wikiquote.

Effective arrangement is the key to make Wikiquote accessible, and encouraging visitors to continue with their visit. Arrangement should take into account the limited time people have available. For that I think, introductions should be short, and every article should have a clear division in the quotes offered.

Also in the context of Wikiquote "Free encyclopedia" means: Contents free of charge, but protected by copyright laws. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License; additional terms may apply.
