Who said that? is the most frequently asked question relating to quotations; it is closely followed by the more general What's been said about this? Oxford Reference provides the tools for answering both queries, in a series of dictionaries compiled from our Quotation resources.
Who Said That?
To find the answer, try one of our author-organized texts like the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. You will need a good keyword index in which to hunt for the half-remembered words; the text should be organized by author with a brief biography so that you can see what the person did and when they lived. OR, if you think you know the author, you can go directly to the entry and read through their quotations.
