Over the decades, I’ve collected hundreds of books of quotations to refer to in my work and to browse for fun. As a result, I became familiar with most of the famous quotations that are commonly cited.
I also noticed that famous quotes are often recycled, paraphrased, adapted and misquoted in humorous and serious ways. But I found few books that collected these uses, counterquotes and take-offs.
So, I decided to write one myself, incrementally, in the form of this blog.
I hope you find the entries here as educational and entertaining as the process of creating them is for me.
