Thank you for your effort to contribute to our project, but Wikiquote exists for the collecting of notable quotations of famous people and famous works, not for the posting of quotations of people not yet famous in some field. Within bounds of Wikimedia policy, registered users can put quotes of themselves or people they know on their user pages.

- For the life of me, I cannot find anything in the pages it links to that demands that quotes should be from famous people. More specifically one states:
- We limit ourselves to quotations which are notable. A quotation can be notable either because it has achieved fame by itself, but more usually because it was said by someone notable, or appeared in a notable work.
- And another one says
- Wikiquote aims to have quotes from many different people, literary works, films, memorials, epitaphs and so on.
- So the templates demand "notable quotations of famous people and famous works" seems to be unjustified. Kleuske 19:46, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
