Do I need to cite who said it?

RE: Favorite Quotes
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

"Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe."

RE: Favorite Quotes
A friend of mine is a good friend of Joe Torre. Several years ago, he was invited to Florida the week before spring training started to fish, play golf, and play poker with Joe and Yogi and some other Italian-American baseball players or former players. They were playing poker late one night in the condo with the TV on and the move The Sand Pebbles came on. When Steve McQueen appeared on the screen, someone said something like, "Hey, there's Steve McQueen. He's dead now, right?" Yogi answered, "Yes, but I think he made this movie before he died." Without missing a beat, Torre deadpanned, "Yeah, Yogi, I'm sure he did."

"Which is more useful, the Sun or the Moon? The Moon is the more useful since it gives us light during the night, when it is dark, whereas the Sun shines only in the daytime, when it is light anyway".
