:?: Looking for ideas/suggestions for organizing my quotations collection. What specialized software is available? Is there a way to use Word or a similar common program? I want to be able to list quotations under categories or topics. Thanks.

I've already been doing that for some time using, under "My Computer" the "Explore" function, create a main folder called "quotations" and then create sub-folders for anything you want. You do this by maybe selecting the main C drive, and then under "File" choose "new" and start creating. It's worked for me. It may not be the best, but it didn't cost me anything either.

I've never found a really good application for this - one that would be more useful than a simple text file you can search.

I ended up creating my own custom database and software to store, search, and categorize quotations. It runs this site. :)

Thanks for the responses. You would think with the millions who speak professionally that someone would have come up with a simple way to organize speaking material. Some day....!

The one I use is "Wisdom of the Ages" and you can get info on it at this site:
http://quotations.com/
http://www.quotations.com/ad_isb.htm

It is a little pricey, but it starts out with thousands of quotes and you can add your own into the database in various categories and also search the whole database very easily. It works fine for me.
