引言摘录之五
发布时间:2021-03-09 03 来源: 互联网

前几天,我突然想知道,人们在twitter上都引用谁的话。

于是,我搜索了#quote标签。

我惊奇地发现,返回的搜索结果质量相当高,堪称我见过的效果最好的引言网站。人们真的在一刻不停地引用妙语警句,每分钟都会新增几十条结果。

如果你想进一步找出最受欢迎的引言,可以搜索"RT #quote"。

如果你想搜索某个主题的引言,可以加入主题词,比如"love #quote"、"war #quote"、"animal #quote"等等。

我自己非常喜欢收集妙语警句,认为这是学习他人智慧、增强表达效果的最好方法之一。将近三年前,我做过一个"引言摘录"系列(一、二、三、四)。今天,我从twitter上又摘录并翻译了一些引言,附在下面,当作这个系列的第五部分。
