When I find a quote I like, I want to know not just who said it, but where it was said. Only knowing who said it seems as if I don’t care enough or haven’t invested enough to be able to truly enjoy it. Where did the words come from? What book or letter or speech? If it’s a book, I like to get my hands on it and read what came before and after the words. It’s both a question of wanting to be sure the words are not being taken out of context and wanting to see if perhaps there’s more. If I like a slice of words enough to write the words down, I want to know as much about them as I can.
