Excitations for my quotation anthologist soul. Quotation collecting, quoting, misquoting, quotation marks, books, writing, reading, grammar, language, humor, authors, prose and poetry, the beauty and quirks of words. Compiled by a quotatious word nerd, lover of literature, and ardent supporter of the serial comma. Unapologetic em dash and exclamation point renegade. Creative punctuation and invented words as literary art, weaving proper grammar and poetic license.
