I’ve been collecting quotes for awhile. Here’s a quick video on how I manage them in Roam Research.
There’s a couple things that make this work:
- I use a query that displays everything that has the tag #Quotebook
- I set up a separate page for each author with the tag and a link to the book page (if appropriate)
- I put the quotes as blocks on the author’s page and use block embeds everywhere else.
It’s not too tricky, but the result is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
