Arguments against[edit]

Other discussion[edit]

I had marked this as approved, but pulled the trigger too fast, and some issues were raised afterwards. Namely, much of the content in the Incubator seems to be poems, not quotes, and that is more fit for a Wikisource. Wikiquotes should have (relatively short) quotes by specific people or on specific topics, while much of the content here fails to meet those criteria. Please consider moving the content to Wikisource; then, if there is more activity there, the Oriya Wikisource proposal could be considered instead.

Thank You Jon, I have marked all the poems in a category which will be transfer to wikisource --Srikant Kedia 12:29, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

In this language the quotes are in the form of poem. I mean though they seem like poems they are actually quotes. In ancient odia language the quotes were in these forms only. In short "Short lines which teach moral values and ethics".--Jnanaranjan sahu (talk) 06:50, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
