Why Are Quotes so Popular?

Memorable quotes are usually short and pithy and can be memorized easily since everybody likes to recall their favorite quotes. The human brain has an innate ability to remember clever phrases and catchy sound bites and this is basically what famous quotations capitalize on.

Quotes are an excellent way to connect people. If two people know a particular quote, they find common ground to start a conversation and take the conversation further. Similarly, if someone is unwilling to accept a stranger’s viewpoint, quoting a familiar person may help create a sense of trust and willingness to listen to what he or she has to say.

However, quotes are most valuable for their ability to encapsulate complex ideas. It is not very easy to verbalize how you feel, think or what you believe in, especially if you have to explain these thoughts and emotions to someone else in a comprehensible manner.
