Quotations - Speech

This post is designed to help speech students locate, use and cite quotation resources both in print and online.
CBC Library Reference Databases

Locate Books of Quotations (print reference books) - Search the CBC Library Catalog

NOTE: When searching books of quotations use single keywords that represent the broad themes of your speech, not the specific keywords that you would use to search for information. For instance, if you were doing a speech on health insurance:
  • Good thematic keywords - health, illness, doctor
  • Too specific - health insurance, medicaid, healthcare costs

Citing an Article in a Book of Quotations in MLA Style
