    About Wikiquote[edit]

    What is Wikiquote?[edit]

    This is one of the sister projects of Wikipedia. Wikiquote is a free compendium of quotations that is being written collaboratively by the readers. The site is a Wiki, meaning that anyone, including you, can edit any entry right now by clicking on the edit this page link that appears in every Wikiquote entry. There are 38,093 articles in English that are being worked on with many more entries pending other languages. It is also run by Wikimedia Foundation. You may look at what Wikipedia says about Wikiquote.

    If you are not familiar with Wikiquote, we suggest you start with a quick read of Welcome, newcomers page on Wikiquote.

    Quotability rules[edit]

    Not every quote belongs to Wikiquote. Please take the time to read the guidelines of Wikiquote. These are considered important, or even essential, by the project's founders and participants. They help us to work towards our goal to create a free compendium of quotations--indeed, the largest compendium of quotations in history, in both breadth and depth. We also want Wikiquote to become a reliable resource.

    Quotability determines whether a quote appears in Wikiquote. There is no absolute test for the inclusion of either a page or a specific quote. However, there are a number of factors to be weighed in determining whether either deserves a place in this compendium. You may find quotability rules of the English version.

    We suggest you read the English guidelines of whatever the version you contribute to, for inspiration, as they are the most detailed. But do not forget to check the relevant language quotability rules before contributing (e.g. in German, quotations have to be quoted by secondary source)!

    How to link between projects[edit]

    If you want to simply create a Wikiquote entry, or to improve a Wikiquote entry, that's fine.

    Here are other things that you might want to do:

    • If you want to link a Wikiquote page here on meta, please write a link here in the following way [[q:en:Women]] where Women is the name of the article you want to link to and en the language code.
    • If you want to link a Wikiquote page on Wikipedia, there are other cool options. Check out the women article for example. The text to add in the wikipedia article is {{Wikiquote-inline|Women}} and its addition must be done at the bottom of the article. But not all languages do it the same way. Check out in French....
    • Do not forget that if you create a Wikiquote entry, it is also interesting to add it in the relevant Wikidata entry.
