Shmoop's new Famous Quotes section allows users to explore memorable excerpts from novels, speeches, songs, TV shows, and, of course...more.

Shmoop Famous Quotes
Shmoop sets itself apart by digging deep and providing fun and accurate information about quotes by everyone from Machiavelli to Beyoncé.

For better or worse, most high school students are more familiar with Taylor Swift than Jonathan Swift. Unfortunately, being able to recite every lyric of "Bad Blood" won't be helpful during an exam on Gulliver's Travels. Shmoop (, a digital publishing company known for its award-winning Test Prep and certified Online Courses, has released a new Famous Quotes section to help students understand and analyze passages from their favorite texts.

The new Famous Quotes section boasts hundreds of quotes from the likes of Rousseau, Rowling, and Rihanna. Each quotation is accompanied by oh-so-clever commentary that includes context, analysis, and pop culture mojo and is scored with a pretentious factor so that readers can use their newfound knowledge without embarrassing themselves.

The entire quote collection can be browsed by source, topic, author, and subject. Find the perfect quote for Valentine's Day under Love Quotes, discover kooky lines from Young Frankenstein under Movie Quotes, or wax poetic with some of T.S. Eliot's best turns of phrase after browsing by author. The options are endless.

"Quotes are a dime a dozen on the Internet," says Shmoop founder, David Siminoff. "But Shmoop sets itself apart by digging deep and providing fun and accurate information about quotes by everyone from Machiavelli to Beyoncé."

Whether students are looking to wow their teachers or woo their crush, Shmoop's Famous Quotes section will arm them with wit and wisdom to rise the the challenge. And who knows? They may even start analyzing the deeper themes of Taylor Swift lyrics.
