Wikiquote is a Wikimedia project that uses MediaWiki software and is part of a wiki-based project run by the Wikimedia Foundation. The main idea of the wiki was put forward by Daniel Alston and implemented by Brian Weber.
The main purpose of Wikiquote is to enable people to participate in creating a huge collection of quotes from prominent people, books and proverbs with their details.
The project was initially launched in English, but other languages have been added since July 2004. Wiki فارسی Persian language started in 2005. Usually the most visited page in the Persian Wiktionary is "Persian proverbs".
