I have a question

Almost everyone I know has a favorite quote or recognizes a quote when it is stated. So my question is simply: how do I find quotable quotes?

I’ve decided to add my favorite line to my beta read feedback.

I’ve heard that helps with marketing a work and most of us need help in that department. I know I do.

So when I’m reading my work or another’s what should I be looking for?

Here’s a few to help you see what I mean:

“You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.”

from: The Road by Cormac McCarthy

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”

from: The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

“There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.”

from: The Two Towers by  J.R.R. Tolkien

And my personal favorites:

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.”

by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”

by André Gide
