β€œDoes there, I wonder, exist a being who has read all, or approximately all, that the person of average culture is supposed to have read, and that not to have read is a social sin? If such a being does exist, surely he is an old, a very old man, who has read steadily that which he ought to have read sixteen hours a day, from early infancy. … My leisure has been moderate, my desire strong and steady, my taste in selection certainly above average, and yet in ten years I seem scarcely to have made an impression upon the intolerable multitude in volumes which β€˜everyone is supposed to have read.”

Arnold Bennett, Journal, Oct.Β 15, 1896

For the longest time, I kept quotes in my journalling system - DayONE. I have been stadily moving all of them into this new public space and adding others as I continue to find them.

Click here to scroll through what is here - or here if you have a specific one in mind. There are a lot here.

A second series of quotes are stored here. Not as many and are actually more attributed words that appeal, not neccesarily β€˜famous’ in the way the others are..
