GIGA for Quotes and Folks
If you're looking for over 50,000 quotes, biographical information on over 8,000 people, and a reading list of over 3,000 books, than you're looking for GIGA at http://www.giga-usa.com/
There's a lot to see here but let's concentrate on the quotes. Quotes are available as the quotes of the week, alphabetical by topic, alphabetical by name, and organized by the birth date of the author. There are also quote links (there's a site for top 100 quotes?) that are part of a larger link list (which unfortunately offers no annotation.)
The biographical information is interesting. It's divided alphabetically. Each listing has the name and birth/death years of the person, a brief description (like, less than ten words), links to quotes, and links to Amazon books.
