Wikiquote is “a free online compendium of quotations in every language, including sources (where known), translations of non-English quotes, and links to Wikipedia for further information!”
My favorite quotation of the moment is one made by Eric Hoffer, included on Wikiquote’s page for him:
In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.
Unfortunately Wikiquote does not list a source for this quotation, and I have been unable to find one either in my brief google searchers. If you know the original source for this Hoffer quotation, please let me know by commenting here! (That way others will learn too!) 🙂
