Poetic License Quotes
Original quotes have been made by individuals worldwide, often in foreign languages that do not translate well into English, are often not clear to all audiences or often use words that are not appropriate for all audiences.
Quotes that appear on this website have been edited and re-written in clear simple English so all site visitors, including children, may better understand them and not be offended by them.
For example, Johan Cruyff, one of the best players and managers in the world, has hundreds of quotes in Dutch that have been translated and been published worldwide. "Je gaat het pas zien als je het door hebt" in Dutch translates to "You can only see it when you get it" in English. Our "poetic license" quote is "You'll understand it when you get it".
