Why not select ‘Quotations’ in ‘Reference Type’ to find memorable, reliable quotes to use in your essays?

We found these wise words by Robert W. Chapman, which sounded quite appropriate:

A quotation, like a pun, should come unsought and then be welcomed only for some propriety or felicity justifying the intrusion.’

Extract from ‘The Art of Quotation’, in Writer’s Digest, May 1977.
