We now move past the "preliminary" appeal for suggestions of candidates for my annual list of the 10 most notable quotations of the year, disseminated by the Associated Press.  The time is drawing near when I have to produce a final list.  The criteria are quotations that are famous, or important, or particularly revealing of the spirit of our times.  Invariably many of the quotes are political in nature, but I do very much want some nonpolitical quotes from fields such as popular culture, sports, business, science, etc.  I also would like to have some foolish quotes from Democratic politicians to give the list some balance.

Note that quotations from December 2021 may be eligible.  Internet memes can be considered if they are very popular.
