A Place To Find & Save Popular Quotes . .

Refspace is:

" a community-based project where you can:

read. popular quotes from famous people, books, or movies
save. those that you would like to refer to in the future
share. interesting quotes with others

All quotations remain the intellectual property of their respective originators. We do not assert any claim of copyright for individual quotations. All use of quotations is done under the fair use copyright principal. "

You need to register to be able to save and send but that's pretty standard.

It's also not a huge compendium of quotes but what is there is quite pithy (so says Miss Bun).

You can search via People (there are also brief bios for those quoted) or Source or Tags.

There are tabs for New Quotes, Saved, Post, About, and Login/Register.

Here is a quote listed on Refspace by Steve Jobs (Apple, Inc. CEO):

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Participate and Enjoy!
