Possibly unnotable quotesEdit

I've moved the following from the main page, because the quotees did not have a wikipedia or a wikiquote page. If there is evidence of notability, add it here, on a wp page or a wq page, and restore quote. Thanks ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 10:36, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

  • "If life begins at 40, what is it that ends at 39?"

All quotees currently have a linked page on wikiquote. If you add quotes by people who do not have either an wq or a wikipedia page, please make sure to wikilink to the non-existing wq page (a redlink), and add some note on the quotee here, so notability will be evident. Alternatively, create the wq page. Thanks ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 11:41, 21 October 2005 (UTC)
