Quotery allows you to discover famous quotes, start your own personalized collection, and share the most popular quotations with friends.
Everyone loves a good quote. You can quote me on that. From anonymous sayings to words of wisdom from inspirational individuals like Martin Luther King or Ghandi, people reference quotes all around the world on a daily basis. Quotery is a comprehensive database of some of the world’s best and most well-known quotations. The site lists over 10,000 quotes from a variety of authors and occasions, spanning “politics, government, sports, entertainment comedy and everything in between.” organized in an encyclopedic manner that makes it easy and worthwhile to both browse and search. Quotes can be browsed by quote (obviously), as well as by authors, topics or pictures. There’s a huge list of topics, each of with is accompanied by a similarly large list of quotes. If you have something in particular that you’re looking for, you can use the site’s built-in search tool.
The thing that separates Quotery from other quote-listing websites is the context that the site provides. Each quote (unless its from an anonymous author) is accompanied by pictures, variations of the same words, historical significance, and an avenue to discuss interpretation. There’s even a trivia game built in to several of the quotes, a feature which provides additional background regarding a specific quote. The site can provide an educational experience but it’s also simply fun to play around with. It’s also significantly less clunky than other sites that host list of quotes, and the use of pictures and accurate context definitely make it more fluid to navigate. If you’re ever in need of some inspiration or just want to read some short, powerful words, Quotery is the place to visit.
