So many of the quotes we see on the Internet are taken (often out of context) from the writings or speeches of well-known or famous people. Moreover, many of these are statements that were made decades or centuries ago by philosophers or writers who are no longer with us.
These quotes get tweeted in Twitter, posted in Facebook and Google+ and other sites with a lot of repetition across the Web. Those posting such posts tend to search the Net and 'borrow' such quotes from the blogs and websites of others.
It's time to read and write some fresh ideas, or at least some fresh and modern ways of expressing ancient wisdom. The world is now older and wiser, and more enlightened in many ways. Also, with science and astronomy continuing to discover new insights into what makes life tick, wisdom thinkers have more knowledge on which their own personal insights and ideas can come alive.
Write Your Page
Start creating your own page on this site now. It's easy!
Just type into the form below. For additional hints and tips, click on the little ? button next to a heading.
If you wish, you can start of with an introductory paragraph before you start with your wisdom thoughts themselves.
At the end of each quote please type a hyphen, then a space followed by your name. This is to make it easier for others to copy and paste an individual quote along with the name of its author, for the purpose of sharing it with others. Example: - Michael Rawls

If you have a website or blog: At the Author Information section...
In the Your Name box, enter your name followed by a comma and then your location (e.g. Joan Citizen, Johannesburg, South Africa)
Use the Your Location box to enter the URL of your website or blog.
If you don't have a website or blog, just use those boxes as they are labelled.
If you have a social network account (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.), you can include at the end of your quotes your Username for your main social network account, and it will be added at the end of your page.
Page length: To make it viable for the search engines, if possible include more than one of your original quotes so that your page is more than a line or two in length. Alternatively, add your own comments/explanation after each quote. You can submit more original 'quotables' later too, and any such new items will be added at the top of your existing page. You can include as many items as you wish in each submission
Length of each quote: There is no limit, but here is a tip: Quotes are reportedly the most popular tweets in Twitter, and possibly some other social media sites too; and people like to post and also to re-tweet other people's tweeted quotes. So, if possible, try to include in your original quotables some items that can be tweeted in less than 120 characters, including your name. That allows me to add a short-link after your name so that when people copy and paste your quotable, there will be a hyperlink to your quotes page on this site. (If this is all 'Greek' to you, don't worry. I'll sort it out when I receive your submission.)
Important: Be sure to add your name at the end of each item of wisdom/philosophy, preceded by a hyphen. Type it exactly how you would like others to acknowledge the quote as being your original creation - for example:
- Michael Rawls (For Twitter, it might be useful to omit your middle name, to stay within the limit of 140 characters.)
