There are many places to find celebrity quotes, but where else can you see them diagrammed?
I started this page thinking that I would diagram quotes from celebrities in our current culture. That turned out to be quite difficult. I like to diagram inspiring, well-crafted sentences, and hunting those down in today's media jungle was not a fruitful use of my time and energy.
So, this page has turned more into a collection of inspiring quotes from past "celebrities." I hope you enjoy it! All of their quotes will be in sentence diagrams. Cool, huh?
