My quarrel with him is, that his works contain nothing worth quoting; and a book that furnishes no quotations, is, me judice [in my opinion], no book - it is a plaything.
Pearl Harbor is a two-hour movie squeezed into three hours, about how on December 7, 1941, the Japanese staged a surprise attack on an American love triangle. Its centerpiece is 40 minutes of redundant special effects, surrounded by a love story of stunning banality. The film has been directed without grace, vision, or originality, and although you may walk out Quoting lines of dialog, it will not be because you admire them.roger ebert

I like Quoting Einstein. Know why? Because nobody dares contradict you.
We should treat with great respect the opinion of eminent American lawyers on points which arise before us, but the practice, which seems to be increasing, of Quoting American decisions as authorities, in the same way as if they were decisions of our own Courts, is wrong.
