This page includes all of the quotes that can appear in the quotes widget. They are organized by author.
They come in all kinds: funny, thought provoking, political, spiritual, and more. They are from theologians, authors, politicians, pundits, saints, popes, friends, family, and . . . me. Most of them say things that I agree with, but some I just found to be interesting or thought provoking.
I have attempted to verify the original author of each quote and, when possible, I provided some kind of sourcing . . . a book or document title, an event description, or a date. Please report any errors (or submit new quotes you think I might like) using the contact page.
By Author (multiple quotes)
Following is an expandable list of every author who has more than one quote featured in the Off on a Tangent quotes database. Authors who have only a single quote in the database, and quotes by unknown authors, are listed in another section below the author list.
Authors who have only a single quote in the database have their quotes combined in the "One-Offs" section below. Quotes from unknown and anonymous authors are listed in the "Unknown" section below.
