But what makes a quote quotable? There is an abundance of quotes out there. I personally have read many quotes, although I doubt that the amount of quotes I’ve read in my short life-time are even a drop in the bucket. In the research phase of this article I pretty much doubled the amount of quotes I have read in my life time. Each quote I examined, I tried to look at each from many different angles trying to spot the slightest clue of what it is that makes it quotable.
