Fred Shapiro, associate librarian at Yale Law School, has released his seventh annual list of the most notable quotations of the year.
Top honors go to Mitt Romney for this memorable passage:
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
