Food For Thought is a collection of quotations on myriad topics. This quotation site is different from others on the internet: most quotations include source information. I work hard to ensure that quotations are accurate and are attributed to the true author. Read the caveat for more information.

How to find quotations

Topics are sorted alphabetically. Browse quotations by topic by following any of the links named A-Z, then follow a topic link, or browse the topics page. Find quotations by a particular person in the author index. Longer excerpts and essays are in long.

Use the Food For Thought search tool to find specific text. Search capability is limited (exact matches only, Boolean logic not supported), and can be slow (searching all the records may take a minute or two). Up to fifty quotations are displayed per page; if more than fifty quotations match, follow the "More" link to display the next fifty matches.

How are quotations organized?

Within topics, quotations are ordered by the author's birth year, then alphabetically by last name.

Old- and New-Testament passages are placed as if dated 0 BC/AD 0. Other texts are placed by date of creation. Undated texts are placed at the end of a topic section, as are quotations with 'anonymous' and 'unknown' sources, and those by authors with unknown birth year.

When quotations are added (or old ones corrected), pages in the main collection are updated. The latest site changes are detailed on the updates page. The most recently added and corrected quotations can also be found in new.

Biographical Information

The biography pages list name, nationality, profession, and birth/death year for most people quoted in FFT, and many more people not in FFT.

Non-Sequitur of the Day

I run a Yahoo! group called Non-Sequitur of the Day, where I occasionally post interesting quotations. I will also post a notice when I make changes or updates to FFT. Visit NSOTD to join.


Miscellanea

These quotations are bogus, fabricated, doubtful, or paraphrased.
