I started collecting quotes years ago. Some of my favourites are linked with information managment and here are a few:
“Data, data, data! …I can’t make bricks without clay!” ~ Sherlock Holmes in the book The Adventure of the Copper Beeches by Arthur Conan Doyle
“Where there’s data smoke, there’s business fire” (source unknown)
“Without metrics, you are just another person with an opinion.” Michael Mah
“We never have time to do it right the first time, but we always have time to do it over and over and over again.” W. Edwards Deming
And last but not least:
“No rules, no tools!” (Maxine Fletcher) Radcmendiatogry .
