Interesting Quotations

"Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders."

Ronald Reagan

Good quotations are like poetry; they capture and communicate thoughts and ideas in a concise and effective way; they inform and inspire, and perhaps more importantly they help reveal assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we interpret the world around us. And quotes are timeless: some of those we have used are over 2,000 years old. We hope you will find our selection suitably informative, inspiring or insightful. They come from some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers and statesmen/women.

But Please Note:  We cannot vouch for the accuracy or authorship of every quotation, nor do not necessarily agree with the views and opinions of their authors. We have taken many quotes from the internet, and may well have copied mistakes too. If you spot anything amiss please let us know. The Internet is great but much of the information it contains is “subject to the same rules and regulations as conversation at a bar” (see IT quotes). We have included a few quotes that seem simply too witty or ironical to exclude. We sincerely hope that none of these cause offence. Some of the issues that we are dealing with, like poverty and social exclusion, are clearly no laughing matter.
