The Quotation Fallacy can be defined as any error or defect that weakens the construction, interpretation or treatment of a quotation as a consequence of invalid or faulty reasoning; intentional manipulation or misrepresentation; unintentional carelessness or ignorance; misleading notion or view; and mistaken belief or attribution.

Dear Readers and Followers as well as Lovers and Collectors of Fine Quotes,

On the one hand, exploring the eponymous Quotation Fallacy can curate and demonstrate the inventiveness and ingenuity as well as the ignorance and existential risks of humanity as observed from the complex interplay between the myriad manifestations of quotation and the manifold limitations of intrapersonal cognitive processes occasioning significant and recurrent biases, oversights, misjudgements, misrepresentations, vulnerabilities, unwarranted inferential leaps and faulty conclusions to the detriment of developing, advancing and sustaining civil discourse, human rights, democratic governance, social cohesion, community psychology, critical thinking, critical consciousness and sociopolitical development. On the other hand, the discerning mindset and emancipatory potential engendered by the percipient exercise of quotational intelligence plus the multifarious issues and perennial challenges entailed by the Quotation Fallacy call for the holistic and consilient recognition of the importance of quotational excellence, at least to the extent that how we quote (as well as how we live, choose, think and write) and our emotive, emotional, habitual, instinctual, soul-stirring or inspiriting response to a quotation or statement should be judiciously counterbalanced, tempered, filtered or enriched by the vigilance and diligence of our intellectual faculty as guided by philosophy, cognitive science, logical inquiries, sound reasonings and self-appraisals, in conjunction with information literacy and media literacy as well as social and environmental sciences, so that we can consistently have the guidance and mindset necessary for better logic, action, belief formation, understanding, self-awareness, learning, emotional knowledge, reasoning, planning, creativity, critical thinking, decision making and problem solving.
