Examples of quotations in a Sentence

  1. Henry W. Fowler, A Dictionary of Modern English Usage (1926):

    Quotation ... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised; the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous; the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium.

  2. Vikrant Parsai:

    A book of quotations is one which is filled with God’s wisdom for a happy life.

  3. Amanda Cross:

    The point of quotations is that one can use another's words to be insulting.

  4. Vikrant Parsai:

    He who knows quotations can overcome any type of difficulty in life.

  5. Caldwell O'Keefe:

    I never have found the perfect quote. At best I have been able to find a string of quotations which merely circle the ineffable idea I seek to express.
