    Does anyone have a good method of storing quotations. I use Bonsai (which is great for GTD) but I can't seem to use it store quotes as I would like.

    simple text file?

    How complex are your needs? I.e., thousands of quotes? I just have a plain text file, and use emacs to search through it. I also 'tag' items via a simple wiki-like convention (more here if you're interested).

      I am not familiar with Bonsai (well, actually I am a Bonsai hobbiest, but I am not familiar with the software/system by that title). However, I have been keeping quotes in my journal software (http://www.davidrm.com/thejournal/)and have been quite happy with it. I put key words (for searching) in all caps and small font at the beginning of each quote. At the end I put the source, followed by where and when I have used it.

      Got a link for Bonsai?

      Best wishes,

        Bonsai

        its superb for GTD - it lets you connect projects to NA's and filter by context

              I keep them in Evernote (www.evernote.com ). You can tag them any way you want and it is searchable.

              FYI, here is a good quote site www.brainyquote.com
