I can't find a quote / author - help!
The best way to find a quote is to perform a search of the database. You can choose to search quotes, names, proverbs or a combination thereof. The search works on an exact word match - therefore "quotes about Shakespeare" is not as effective as simply "Shakespeare".
If the search query you want to perform has 3 characters or less, or if you are not sure how to spell the name, try using our relaxed wildcard search - here typing "shak" would return "william shakespeare", whereas with our standard search this would return no results.
