Just enter a word, and the Wyze Words database will be searched for quotations containing the word or quotations which are described by the word. (You can also search by author name, of course.) So searching for "humor" will return all humorous quotations and any quotations that contain the word as well.
If you specify multiple search terms, they are ANDed together. That is, a search for "humor money" will show only those entries that are both humorous and are about money (or have the word "money" in them).
For your convenience, searching is performed using the Porter stemming algorithm. (This means that a search for "book", for example, will find not only the entries that contain the word "book", but also all the entries that contain similar words like "books", "booking", and "booked". However, it will not find entries with the word "bookstore"; for that, you need to use the OR operation.)
The special term "OR" indicates that terms are to be ORed instead of ANDed. For example, if you enter "humor OR money" as your search terms, you will get all the humorous quotations as well as all the financial quotations in the database.
Search terms are case-independent. That is, "abc", "Abc", "abC", and "ABC" are treated equally. (However, the special term "OR", if used, must be capitalized.)
To avoid overloading the search engine, search terms must be at least 3 characters in length. Consequently, searching for "is" will yield no results, even though there are probably plenty of "is"s to be found.
Do you want a quotation to spice up your presentation (or maybe brighten up your life), but you're tired of the same old overused quotations from Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Helen Keller, or — no! — any of the Roosevelts (Teddy, Franklin, or Eleanor)?
Wyze Words is your source for what the thought leaders and influencers of today are saying.
You can search for quotations by topic (humor, success, money, etc.) or author. Then, when a particular quotation catches your interest, you're just one click away from discovering more about the author of the quotation or expanding it into a mini-poster!
