I’m starting to think about my annual list, run by the Associated Press, of the top 10 most notable quotations of the year.  By “notable” I mean “important” or “famous” or “particularly revealing of the spirit of our times” rather than necessarily being eloquent or admirable.  Because this is not a presidential election year or year-before-presidential-election year, the most notable quotations are less obvious, which is why I am soliciting preliminary input at this time.

I would welcome suggestions of notable quotations from 2014, particularly ones from politics or popular culture or entertainment or sports or business or technology.
