Here’s a quote I really like and believe in:
I tend towards naturally disliking quotations. Quotations are for those people who have no words or thoughts original. Quotes are used by people to fill up space in essays they would rather not have written. Quotes make you feel lousy- ’cause most often someone has said it before you and better than you ever will.
Here’s a quotation on quotes: ” I never have found the perfect quote. At best I have been able to find a string of quotations which merely circle the ineffable idea I seek to express.” – Caldwell O’Keefe
