About Citatum

Are these quotes accurate?

Even all the quotes and sources have been verified manually we still can't guarantee their accuracy. If you find a mistake in one of our quotes please write an email to us and we will correct it.

Quote submission

What are your submission guidelines?

All the submitted quotes will be verified manually in order of submission. Please follow these guidelines to make sure that your quote will be accepted.

We collect quotes only from famous people. Please do not send your own or your friends' sayings to us or any quotes from unknown sources. However, you can submit graffitis, tongue-twisters, proverbs, palindromes and epitaphs without information about the author. To decide if a particular author is famous or not you can use the following guidelines:

  • Does he have a published book, album or movie?
  • Does he appear on the media regularly?
  • Is there a Wikipedia article written about him?
  • Are there fansites and articles about him on the Internet?

We don't publish low-quality, trite, meaningless, adult-only, erotic, violent, malignant, swearing, discriminatory or hateful quotes.

How many quotes can I submit to the site?

We receive a lot of quotes every day and it's a huge work to verify all of them. We have set a submission restriction in order to limit the waiting list. You can submit 2 quotes at a time. You may submit up to 10 quotes in case you found them in the same book.

Please read our submission guidelines to make sure that your quote will be published.

We reserve the right to increase the submission limit for any user who sends us good quality quotes regularly.

When will my quote appear on the site?

All the submitted quotes will be verified manually in order of submission. We update our database almost every day but it may take several days or weeks to verify your quotes. Please be patient, we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Why was my quote rejected?

The reason for the rejection was sent to your registered email address.

Can I submit my own quotes?

We collect quotes only from famous people but we don't accept quotes from authors themselves even if they are famous. If you are a famous person you may briefly introduce your book, album or movie to us so we can decide if we need a review copy of it for collecting the quotes.

You can use a small portion of our quotes for personal usage but you need our written permission to use our database commercially. We would prefer you to link to us if you use one of our quotes, but it is not necessary.
