Louise Imogen Guiney

Quotations offer one kind of break in what the eye can see, the ear can hear.

Ihab Hassan

We rarely quote nowadays to appeal to authority... though we quote sometimes to display our sapience and erudition. Some authors we quote against. Some we quote not at all, offering them our scrupulous avoidance, and so make them part of our white mythology. Other authors we constantly invoke, chanting their names in cerebral rituals of propitiation or ancestor worship.

Ihab Hassan

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.

The habit some writers indulge in of perpetual quotation is one it behooves lovers of good literature to protest against, for it is an insidious habit which in the end must cloud the stream of thought, or at least check spontaneity. If it be true that le style c'est l homme, what is likely to happen if l homme is for ever eking out his own personality with that of some other individual?

Dame Ethel Smyth

Famous remarks are very seldom quoted correctly.

Lord Peter Wimsey

The status quo helps liberals. We're going to change the country.

Howard Dean

Tonight was a great opportunity to take on the political status quo that has given us trillion dollar deficits and put millions out of work. Our objective was to inject some common sense into the conversation among Republicans at a time when business-as-usual simply won't work.

Gary Johnson

We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it.

Carl T. Rowan

I do like things that are not necessarily a reflection of what is considered the right thing by this culture. Somehow, promoting that status quo I find uninteresting.

Crispin Glover

Some, for renown, on scraps of learning dote, and think they grow immortal as they quote.

Politics isn't just a game of clashing parties and competing interests. The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it.

Most of us are not real eager to grow, myself included. We try to be happy by staying in the status quo. But if we're not willing to be honest with ourselves about what we feel, we don't evolve.

Olympia Dukakis

It will always be a battle a day between those who want maximum change and those who want to maintain the status quo.

The status quo and the media is doing everything it can to fry children's brains and make them grow up maladjusted.

Julie Christie

A quote is just a tattoo on the tongue.

I improve on misquotation.

Cary Grant

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.

Winston Churchill

Whoever has an original thing to say, it is sort of a threat to the status quo.

States are like people. They do not question the awful status quo until some dramatic event overturns the conventional and lax way of thinking.

Education in this country is about how to maintain the status quo and to perpetuate racism.

Jane Elliot

Chen Shui-bian

Philanthropy is involved with basic innovations that transform society, not simply maintaining the status quo or filling basic social needs that were formerly the province of the public sector.

David Rockefeller

They tend to be civil servants, often diplomats drawn from the Foreign Office, who may be very pleasant, intelligent people, but once they get inside the Palace they're riveted to the status quo and they lose track of public opinion in the real world.

Anthony Holden

There are also just as many, if not more, women who are anxious to hold down the status quo.

Susie Bright

The best thing I can think of would be to create a union between something as beautiful and powerful and wonderful as Hollywood films and a criticism of the status quo. That's my dream, to make such a German film.

Rainer W. Fassbinder

There are two kinds of marriages -- where the husband quotes the wife and where the wife quotes the husband.

Clifford Odets

Aphorisms are essentially an aristocratic genre of writing. The aphorist does not argue or explain, he asserts; and implicit in his assertion is a conviction that he is wiser and more intelligent than his readers.

W. H. Auden

The act of repeating erroneously the words of another.

I pick my favorite quotation and store them in my mind as ready armor, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence.

Robert Burns

Collecting quotations is an insidious, even embarrassing habit, like ragpicking or hoarding rocks or trying on other people's laundry. I got into it originally while trying to break an addiction to candy. I kicked candy and now seem to be stuck with quotations, which are attacking my brain instead of my teeth.

Robert Byrne

I must claim the quoter's privilege of giving only as much of the text as will suit my purpose, said Tan-Chun. If I told you how it went on, I should end up by contradicting myself!
