    "Goodreads is a good source for finding lines from fiction books but what aboiut nonfiction books? Especially those that I need for my biotechnology subject. Goodreads can improve more on this."

    "Not only I refer to IMDb for movie reviews, but also to find the most memorable quotes from movies. I must say IMDb must also include movie scripts on it because these will help me a lot in making my own films."

    "I'm a student and Bartleby helped me a lot finding hard prints of quotes. I just wish they could make finding quotes easier by having their own catalog of quotations instead of me still referring to the library to find quotes. That will save a lot of time."

    "Finding Dulcinea's web directories make me come back for this again and again especially when validating quotations. This is very convenient because I wouldn't have to be bombarded by irrelevant results on Google everytime I type in: "online quote validator" and the likes. FD curated some of the helpful and reliable resources on web."
