Review

A little piece of wisdom can get you through the day and there are many aphorism websites that can offer such quotes. With Forismatic Quotes, however, you can have all this straight from the comfort of your desktop. The application is fairly lightweight, easily accessible and free to use.

Forismatic Quotes lies unobtrusively in the menu bar in the form of an icon. The "Display next quote" function will pop-up a random saying and associated author from its online database. Double-clicking the main window will retrieve and display the next quote.

Quick links allow you to search for the author in Wikipedia, post the quote to Facebook and tweet it. The popup window can be placed anywhere in the desktop.

Users can have quotes automatically displayed within a specified time interval (anywhere between 1 minute and 1 hour) with the ability to hide the window after a few seconds.

Forismatic Quotes comes in a choice of two themes, to better integrate with your own desktop environment.

All in all, this is a simple and convenient way of getting your daily piece of wisdom.
