SEARCH FOR QUOTES BY TOPIC, AUTHOR OR TYPE OF AUTHOR --
When you need a quote to make a point or fill a space, one place to look is http://www.brainyquote.com.
BrainyQuote lets you search several ways, including under dozens of topic categories. These include age, anger, computers, death, imagination, patriotism, sports, success and work.
The choices in each category vary considerably. For example, under Intelligence a writer may weigh whether to go with Dolly Parton ("I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blonde.") or F. Scott Fitzgerald ("The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.").
Under Forgiveness, the views include those of Marlene Dietrich
("Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.") and Friedrich Nietzsche ("If there is something to pardon in everything, there is also something to condemn.")
You can look up quotes of favorite authors, including Dave Barry, Francis Bacon, George Washington, George Will, Lord Byron, Little Richard, Johnny Cash and William James.
If you want an author with a particular point of view, search under such categories as activist, cartoonist, designer, diplomat, environmentalist, first lady, lawyer, saint, theologian and vice president.
BrainyQuote provides links to other Brainy sites: Atlas, Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Geography, History, Music and Translation. http://www.brainyquote.com/

2011 ANNUAL REPORT: ENERGIZING THE WORLD ONE BTU AT A TIME
Peabody Energy, St. Louis, MO ...
"An annual report that is both a report and a rationale for generating energy from coal. Visuals are bold, clear and effective, with functional charts and graphics which reinforce the copy's points. After reading this report, you come away realizing that coal is an essential -- and perhaps the dominant -- element in global energy supply increases over the next two decades. Powerful stuff."
