Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
—Winston S. Churchill, My Early Life
Words are instruments with me.
In the garden of literature, the highest and the most charismatic flowers are always the quotations.
—Mehmet Murat ildan
Leadership is performance art.
At each successive level in the heights of effective leadership, words take on greater importance.
Quotations take on a particular place in any leader’s writing and speaking.
Among the value of quotations:
—they can bring the relevant thinking of others to bear in current circumstances;
—they can inspire listeners and readers;
—they can turn attention to the lives and works to which they refer;
—they can transform history into a bridge to a future vision;
—they can serve as carriers of thoughts, as memorable expressions take on their own life;
—they can raise the speaker or writer’s capacities.
It’s no accident that many of the most quotable leaders of history themselves turned to quotations to convey their messages. Examples include: Emerson, Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, John Kennedy.
