I love quotes. For me, quotes are little passages of infinite wisdom. Or maybe just a fun way to say something. We use quotes every day, even without being fully aware we are using them. Quotes come from a variety of sources, for example when you read a book, listen to music, watch a movie, someone said something that moved you or made you laugh, or simple phrases hand down by your family (sayings).
Quotes have an impact, whether they inspire you, make you feel loving, or make you smile. Usually, quotes are short, but they can be as long as needed. There are no right or wrong quotes. One thing we want to make sure is to give credit of the quote to the right person. We have to make sure the source is reliable.

This coffee falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army on the battlefield, and the battle takes place. Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensign to the wind.

Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder.
