Quotista is a site that provides quotes submitted by visitors. It could be described as a Social Quote Site because you can share and follow quotes with other members. It encourages sharing your favorite quotes from books as well. You can see popular and latest quotes without signing up for an account. There currently is no way to search for quotes and the only way to sign up is using your Facebook account, which means providing your information to Quotista.
You can find quotes in foreign languages as well, in fact, you can find a lot, so it would be a neat way for students in those classes to translate quotes. Just make sure they are appropriate of course. I would sometimes provide quotes in my classroom for students to write their thoughts on and as motivation for achievement.
I am not a fan of using Facebook to sign up for sites. You might not care and could get more use out Quotista, so I thought I would share it.
