This week Fred Shapiro, associate law librarian at Yale Law School and editor of the Yale Book of Quotations, unveiled his annual list of the most notable quotes of the year. Given that many of us were focused on politics for much of the year, it’s not surprising that this ten quote list is dominated by quotes on the topic. Included are quotes from Mitt Romney regarding the “47 percent” and President Obama on “horses and bayonets.” On a the entertainment side, the list also includes a reference to the Gangnam Style craze. If you would like to see the entire top ten list, it can be viewed here. And the Yale Book of Quotations can be found in the library reference collection at PN6081.Y35.
