Here are some personally curated quotes that can be used with the program fortune^[1]. Due to filetype restrictions, I cannot upload binary or compressed files. You can read the files since they are plain text, but please follow these steps if you would like to use them with fortune:

  1. Rename the file to remove the .txt extension (not strictly necessary, but makes filenames cleaner)
  2. Generate a .dat file by running strfile filename. The strfile program comes with fortune and the .dat file and the .dat is a file with pointers to each of the quotes
  3. Install by copying the both the text file and the .dat file to your fortune directory
