San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2013 -- The internet has seen a profound proliferation in the use and interest people take in quotations. Once thought to be a stuffy or pretentious bid to appear well-read, quoting the famous and influential from years past is now considered more acceptable than ever. Many quotation websites however suffer from drowning the best material in the obscurity of too many minor or user-submitted quotes that dilute the power of the knowledge they hold. Quote Corner has addressed this, with its editor curating the collection to ensure only the best and most powerful quotes are represented. This has led to the site gaining the attention of the quote hungry public.
The famous quotes of influential authors like Oscar Wilde and Ralph Waldo Emerson, counter-culture icons like Jimi Hendrix and Voltaire, and spiritual leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are almost as well known as the icon’s themselves, and their words are leant power by their own successes in their respective fields.
But the website doesn’t only have famous sayings from famous people, but speeches by some of history’s most influential people, including Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon Bonaparte, Disraeli and Nelson Mandela. This is a goldmine of content for historical enthusiasts made more accessible than ever as they are brought together for the first time in one place.
The top ten lists are likely to prove the most popular, organized by a diverse range of categories, like Chinese Philosophy, Mark Twain and Motivation, making it easy to find the cream of the crop in key topic areas without sifting through hundreds of obscure attributions found on bigger sites.
A spokesperson for the site explained, “The editor and curator of the website is passionate about quotations, believing that there is a natural ‘survival of the fittest’ at play in what is remembered throughout time and what is forgotten, and that the words of these individuals, most all of whom titans in their own time, can speak more clearly and concisely to the heart of the issues they deal with than the many billions of words now filling the internet across blogs, advice and editorial sites. The information held on the site grows every day, so be sure to check back regularly for more jewels of wisdom.”
