QuotesOnComics.com, run and curated by Paulo Patrício, is exactly what its name says it is: a website with random quotes on comics, some hilarious, some dead serious, others thought-provoking, but all stimulating and thoroughly inspirational.

“Quotes on Comics gives you what’s in the name, presented randomly for your diversion.”
