The alt.quotations FAQ. It gives answers to frequently asked
questions (that's what FAQ stands for), sums up some frequently asked
(and posted) quotations, and is a small guide to quotations and related
subjects in general--or at least it tries to be all this. If you are
new to this group and want to post here, or merely wish to peruse it
for any length of time, you should definitely read through this FAQ
carefully. If you have a question about a quotation, look carefully
through section 8 to see whether the answer may not be there.
