“These Quotes are sayings from GM’s or other famous people that have been passed from generation to generation primarily by word of mouth (although they may also have been put into some written form) and they represent a truth or some bit of useful wisdom that is usually based on common sense or practical experience. The effect of a Quote is to make the wisdom it tells, seem to be self-evident.”
