Membership is $5.99 USD for a one year subscription.

No Recurring Charges

We will not charge your credit card when your subscription expires. In fact, we do not even store (or see) your credit card details. Stripe.com handles payments through our website and they are incredibly good at what they do.

We will send you one email reminder a week before your subscription expires. That's it! We want to win your business each year because you love the features Pro has to offer, not because you forgot to cancel your subscription.

Expired

If you happen to let your subscription expire, your private quotes will not be deleted or made public. You will always be able to export them, at any time.

Stack 'Em

You can commit to several years of Pro by buying additional years. These will show up as "Reserve" on your Pro page, and one will be redeemed a week before your subscription expires.

Giving Rules

Lastly, you may purchase FavQs Pro for someone. If you like their quotes, or they helped you discover a new quote, you can reward them. On the user's profile page, there is a button at the bottom to buy one year of FavQs Pro for them.


Your Privacy

I'm not in this to collect your data and sell it to 3rd parties. If you want a service that does that, there are plenty of them out there. I love quotes, just like you do, and I want to give you the best experience to enjoy them, while respecting your privacy.

I will never sell or share personally identifiable information, like your email address or private quotes, to anyone.

If you have a question, please contact me. You can read our Privacy Policy for in-depth detail.

Quotes vs Dialogues

You can add your favorite Quote or Dialogue. A Quote has one author whereas a Dialogue will have more than one.

For example, here's a Quote:

And here's a Dialogue:

FavoriteQuote

2 favs
Ted Striker: “Surely you can't be serious.
Rumack: “I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.
source: Airplane!, 1980. Film.

Quotes

Quotes show the number of people who have "fav'd" and voted on that quote.

FavoriteQuote

6 favs

Double-check your spelling and punctuation before submitting a quote.

Once the quote has been submitted, you can no longer edit it.


Private Quotes
Pro

A Pro user can add private quotes. These are denoted by the lock symbol.

FavoriteQuote

No one would be able to see this quote except the user who created it.

The user who creates a Private quote has the choice to convert it to a Public quote.


Tags (a.k.a., "popular tags")

Quotes have tags associated with them. These tags are generated when enough people tag a quote with the same Personal Tag. Think of these tags as "popular" tags.

Popular tags are sometimes noted with the following icon:

For example, the quote below is tagged with "ambition" because several users have personally tagged it with the word "ambition".

Personal Tags

You can add a Personal Tag to a quote by adding it to the "Personal Tags" field. Personal Tags are a great way to organize your favorite quotes.

Personal tags are sometimes noted with the following icon:

For example, our sample user has personally tagged this quote as "funny". Since several other users have as well, the personal-tag is also showing up as a popular tag.

FavoriteQuote

2 favs
tags: the-office, funny
personal-tags: funny

Sources

When you add a quote, there is an optional field to provide the source of the quote. The provenance of a quote is just as important as the quote itself to many of our users. If you know where the quote is from, please provide a detailed description of its origin.

FavoriteQuote

2 favs
source: William Shakespeare's Sonnet 73

Some quotes can be sourced directly using a URL. If you have a URL that directly identifies the origin of your quote, you can include that in the source field. For example:

FavoriteQuote

2 favs
tags: movie

Context

A quote might require setup or background information in order to understand or deepen the meaning of a quote. Therefore, there is an optional "Context" field when you add a quote.

FavoriteQuote

3 favs
context: Persuading John Sculley (then CEO of Pepsi) to become Apple's CEO
tags: apple, ceo
