Bret Easton Ellis[edit]

Welcome to Wikiquote! We hope that you will find this site useful, and will contribute to the ever-growing database of quotes from notable sources.

I noticed that you created a page for Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, a book that was made into a movie with a quote page here. Please note that we do not have articles on individuals just for the sake of explaining who they are. We typically use links to Wikipedia for this purpose, as they can do a much more thorough job than we can. Our articles are strictly for quotes, although we like to have a quick blurb about the subject, as you have provided for Ellis.

The Ellis article has been nominated for deletion because of its lack of quotes. You may want to register a vote there. Better still, if you can provide quotes from Ellis himself, it will help people decide to keep the article. (If you can cite sources for such quotes, it makes the case even stronger. Sources are not required for contributions, but they are highly desired.) Thank you for your assistance in this. — Jeff Q (talk) 15:09, 21 May 2005 (UTC)
