You will get a list of suggestions if you are wrong.

Find Quotes.com
"Find a quote by searching our database of over 50,000 famous quotations or browse through over 100 categories of quotes."

Quotations organised by subject: you can't search them by author. (What you get is quotations but nothing about the people who said them; not even the name of the people who said them!)

They are "Taglines, Slogans, Sigs, and One-Liners", and this is a site for people who are writing speeches, therefore.

Very much an American production.

Greenwich, England has been the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) since 1884. GMT is sometimes called Greenwich Meridian Time because it is measured from the Greenwich Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. Greenwich is the place from where all time zones are measured.
