I’ve always loved collections of quotations, ever since I discovered my mother’s old copy of Bartlett’s when I was around eleven years old. I spent many hours reading through it, and exploring the index. I remember going from the index to a quotation, and then working backward from the quotation to the index, trying to work out which words were significant enough to be indexed. Little did I know how important those searching skills would become many years later!
Quotes Daddy is sort of the Web 2.0 version of Bartlett’s — a large and eclectic assortment of quotations, with tag clouds, personal accounts, and an API for mashability. The most popular feature here, however, is probably the widgets, which make it easy to embed individual quotations in blog posts or webpages, like the one above.
