Famous quotes in English

Some quotes are part of everyday English, familiar to any native English speaker. It's useful to be familiar with them because they may come up in conversation, or they may be referred to without being quoted directly. The people who said these things are, in many cases, famous English speakers such as scientists, politicians, or writers. Finding out more about the lives of these people is a good way to broaden your familiarity with English-speaking cultures.
