A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit, and a pebble in the hand of a fool

Famous People Quotes

A lot of famous people have said a lot of famous things. But of course not all wonderful quotes are said by famous people and certainly not all famous people ever say anything worth recording or repeating. Maybe one day I will have a page on PaulKavanagh.com with a list of quotes from someone like Paris Hilton, but for now I think I will stick with famous people who have said some things of inspiration and note.

Okay so some famous folk do also have an amazing knack of saying very silly things, things that just amaze you or really make you laugh and on this area of my website I certainly have a few of those, the quotes from the likes of Sir Bobby Robson and Brian Clough do certainly fit into that arena.

When I have been researching this area of my site I have come across a vast amount of very famous quotes that are not credited to anyone. How sad it is that a quote of superb wisdom is out there forever more but the person who said it is long since forgotten. To leave a mark on the world is a great thing but to never get the credit you deserve is a tad sad. I wonder if I will ever say anything so profound that it will end up on a list of famous quotes on the web, I do hope so.

Of course a number of these quotes, in this area of my site, do appear in different sections and pages of my site, but some people do deserve a page all to themselves, so I hope you enjoy these lists of wit, wisdom and wonder.
