Description

This article is from the Quotations FAQ, by Sir Hans dok@fwi.uva.nl Jason Newquist jrnewquist@ucdavis.edu with numerous contributions by others.

2.3 What is appropriate to post to a.q? (alt.quotations newsgroup)


The inappropriate cannot be beautiful.
Frank Lloyd Wright (1869-1959)
"The Future of Architecture" (1953)

Anything mentioned in 2.1. One-liners, ``laws'', funny limericks
about people from Nantucket and so on belong in rec.humor (see also
1.3). If you have a request for quotes from a television series or
movies, you are probably better off asking in groups on that subject.
A good list of movie quotes, maintained by Lars Jorgen Aas can be found
on the following two FTP sites:
cathouse.org in pub/cathouse/movies/database
ftp.funet.fi in pub/culture/tv+film/lists

If you want to have the lyrics for a particular pop/rock/whatever-
these-youngsters-listen-to-today-song, your best bet is to check out
the following FTP site:
ftp.uwp.edu in pub/music/lyrics
There are quite a few different lyrics there. Alternatively, ask
on alt.music.lyrics on one of the many other music groups--there's
bound to be one on your favorite kind of music.
