This week’s Website of the Week is Quote Investigator. Ever wondered whether that famous quote you love to use is factually accurate? Did Albert Einstein really say everything attributed to him? How would we know and could we ever find out for sure? Dr Garson O’Toole may be able to help. His excellent investigative blog Quote Investigator attempts to get to the bottom of just who said what, when and where.
Dr O’Toole scours the web and print sources to separate the fact from fiction when it comes to famous quotes. So before you emblazon that essay or blog post with some snappy quote by your favourite author, just check that they did in fact say what you think they said.
The site attempts to match your interests in books, films and music with other compatible content. Try searching your favourite author, book, film or band and Tastekid will suggest other things that you might like based on the style, audience and genre. Give it a try.
