==''ვინმეს'' ან ''ვინმეზე'' ციტატები==
The tests set forth below are directed only towards the propriety of including entries on actual persons, and including quotes that are by (or about) such persons. They are ''not'' intended to address the quotability of novels, films, or television shows, for which other criteria apply.
There is ''no'' absolute test for the inclusion of either an article on a person, or a specific quote by that person; however, there are a number of factors to be weighed in determining whether either deserves a place in this compendium. These include:
#Is the quote itself particularly witty, pithy, wise, eloquent, or poignant?
#Is the author of the quote ''notable''? If so, are they very notable, moderately notable, barely notable? Are they notable as a ''source of quotes'' (i.e., as a poet, pundit, or [[Yogi Berra]])?
#Is the quote itself independently well known (as with proverbs and certain well-reported comments)?
#Is the subject of the quote a notable subject? Is it about a broad theme of the human experience such as [[Love]], [[Justice]], or [[Loneliness]]? Or is it about a narrow or mundane topic, like [[porcupine]]s, lunch meat, or that new car smell? If the quote is about a mundane topic, does the author have particular expertise on that topic? If the quote is about another person, is that other person highly notable?
#Has the quote stood the test of time?
#Is the quote verifiably sourced?
Further discussion of these concepts is set forth below.
