Quotations by Subject

Welcome to my "Quotations by Subject" page. This page has evolved from a list of 10 of my favourite quotations to the site of 250 odd quotations in 13 categories which it is now. I have included quotations about the facts of life, theories of life, advice and lots of other famous or meaningful quotations.

Below is a list of the categories which I have used. Many quotations sites on the internet categories using the first letter of the quotations or in alphabetical order of the person who said them. I have chosen to use the method of putting them into quite broad subject bands. I feel that this makes it far easier to find the kind of quotation you are looking for and makes the process of browsing through far more pleasurable. For each category I have given a brief description and an example of the kind of quotation that you will find in it.
