Quote Catalog

Find the right words

Quote Catalog is a quote database, beautifully organized and meticulously sourced and annotated by professional editors and qualified members of our community. Editorial topics range across all media: music, TV, movies, books, websites, podcasts, and more. Our goal is to provide a quote for every occasion and the proper citation, which includes a link back to the source material. In an age of information overload, Quote Catalog is your antidote.

Quote Catalog is owned and operated by The Thought & Expression Company, a Brooklyn, New York media company founded in 2010 that also runs the website Thought Catalog and Shop Catalog. The Quote Catalog engine itself is powered by a patented text segmenting system, which allows us to create one of the most metadata rich quote indexes on the internet, whether it be a quote from The Office, a beautiful poem from the 1900s, or that funny joke you saw on an Instagram meme account.

How Our Site Works

We think of Quote Catalog as more than just a quote website. It’s a powerful query engine that helps differentiate signals from noise. That’s why our website does not look like any other quote website on the internet. Here’s an overview of the functionality.

  • QC Homepage — Our homepage is a daily curation of the web, showcasing headlines and titles of where we are sourcing quotes from in real-time. The page is also scattered with random funny, inspirational, and deep quotes.
  • QC Collections — QC collections are custom-built quote libraries based on people, themes, and media types. For example, here is a person page based on Marshall Mcluhan, one around the theme of beach quotes and another just based on quote from a certain movie.
  • QC Rankings — Based on data we collect around quotes, we create movie and TV show rankers and trackers. Some of our most popular trackers are guides to new TV shows, the best Netflix shows, and movie plots.

Our homepage is a daily curation of the internet, showcasing headlines and titles of where we are sourcing quotes from. Click on any link on the homepage and it will bring you straight to the source material. Next we have a rotating portfolio of quote collections dedicated to everything the mind can imagine: sad quotes, inspirational quotes, movie quotes, love quotes, deep quotes and even selfie captions. We also have a collection of quote pictures or images for a more graphic and creative approach to quotes.

Our website design intentionally takes a brualist and information-first approach to design.
