Data Sources

Source of literary quotes also by tjaap from link on -- litclock_annotated.csv. So far, I've made some minor tweaks to this data to get each quote onto one line. Oddly, this is a pipe separated file, not comma separated as the name might imply. License appears to be CC BY-NC-SA 2.5, the material of which can be used within a GPLv3 licensed program.
