Well, thanks for playing. You had trouble identifying most, if not all of the authors of the quotes in this quiz. You don't know who said most, if not any of the most famous quotes. You are sadly un-quotable at this time.

C+, Un-quotable

Not bad. You managed to identify several of the authors of the quotes in this quiz. You have a decent memory for the most famous quotes, but don't know all of the authors. That is okay. You have a limited quotability, but still good.

B+, Limited Quotability
