Quotations are words and sentences that are being repeated by someone other than the person who originally spoke or wrote them. Quotations quotes reveal a vast array of resources that can help inspire and motivate you. Quotations may also be called quotes, and they can be found from well known celebrities and common men and women both. Some of these are funny, others are serious, and some may be very motivating. If you place quotation marks around a sentence or paragraph this indicates something that someone has said which you are quoting word for word. Quotations can also reference a written estimate that shows the cost to perform a project or task. If you need a new roof then you will want to get quotations from several roofers first.
