Wikipedia

  1. quotations

    A quotation is the repetition of a sentence, phrase, or passage from speech or text that someone has said or written. In oral speech, it is the representation of an utterance (i.e. of something that a speaker actually said) that is introduced by a quotative marker, such as a verb of saying. For example: John said: "I saw Mary today". Quotations in oral speech are also signaled by special prosody in addition to quotative markers. In written text, quotations are signaled by quotation marks. Quotations are also used to present well-known statement parts that are explicitly attributed by citation to their original source; such statements are marked with (punctuated with) quotation marks. Quotations are often used as a literary device to represent someone's point of view. They are also widely used in spoken language when an interlocutor wishes to present a proposition that they have come to know via hearsay.

    Quotes About The Impossible: ►Who defines what is impossible? No one. Impossible is simply the set of things that we have not YET achieved. ►Every record ever broken and every formerly ''impossible'' journey began with one person, taking one step forward and acting on their dream. Hear, then, ''impossible feat'' (feet) as the ultimate oxymoron. *Quotations by Brad Mittman MD
