Fortune Cookie Database


This repository contains a fortune cookie database, intended to be used with programs like my Python fortune program, my Go fortune program, or the BSD fortune program. It contains more than 2,800 quotes that I've collected since about 1990 or so.


  • fortunes contains the actual fortunes (i.e., the quotes)
  • fortunes.dat is an index file, suitable for use with the Python fortune program.
