Description:
This category seeks the locations that have quotes permanently displayed.
Expanded Description:

What this category is:

  • A place to waymark any quote or text that was important enough to be placed in a medium to stand the test of time.
  • It would be reasonable to assume that the medium will last at least 100 years. (Mediums that the category initially considers as permanent include stone and metal (such as plaques). There certainly will be other mediums that will fit in this category, and will be evaluated on a case by case basis.)
  • Permanent locations that can be visited and where the a feature of the location is a permanent quote. For example, a quote on granite or a metal plaque.

What this category is not:

  • Seeking merely the location where speeches were made or books written.
  • A place to waymark history markers that contain quotes
  • A place to cite quotes or text on gravestones.
  • Wood is considered a temporary medium, unless qualified by the waymarker as being able to last longer than 100 years.
  • Limitations to this category:

    • Only one waymark should be published for an individual person attributable source.
      • Structures containing multiple quotes from the same person, text or other attributable source will be accepted on each building, memorial, memorial or structure. All quotes by a single indvidual or other attributable source will be included in the waymark.
      • Some structures may have different or additional quotes by a different individual and at a different locations on the same structure. These quotes should be included in one waymark for the structure. If additional quotes are found at a later date they should be added to the original waymark using that waymarks edit feature.

    Example #1:

    • The Lincoln Memorial has multiple inscriptions. If the waymark is citing a quote from Abraham Lincoln, only one waymark will be accepted for the memorial. Additional quotes would either be included in the same waymark or added by other waymarkers as they are identified.
    • If another quote by Abraham Lincoln can be found at the Reflecting Pool, That quote would be considered a separate location and a unique waymark location, the two waymarks will be accepted, as these are two structures, independent of each other.

    Example #2:

    • A city library constructed of limestone has multiple quotes by different authors.The location is considered one waymark location. Each quote should be included in one waymark.

    Example #3:

    • A memorial has the text "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." The quote can be referenced back to the Bible in John 15:13 or from Jesus.

    Example #4:

    • On a courthouse lawn sits a monument with the 10 commandments. The attributable source is the Bible in Exodus 20

    Example #5:

    • A monument has the text inscribed "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave." The attributable source would be the song, "Star Spangled Banner."

    Please note: other attributable source, as used within this category is not supposed to be a limiting factor, but be inclusive of poetry, literature, both fiction and non-fiction, movies, and other sources that are quoted. The intent of the waymark is to show importance of the quote, the source that made the quote, and the circumstance surrounding the quote.

    Under this definition, dedications are not accepted unless they can be tied back as a quote.


  • Instructions for Posting a Etched in Stone Waymark:

    The key to this category is waymarking individual quotes differentiated by person and location.

    Naming convention: NAME OF ATTRIBUTABLE SOURCENAME OF LOCATIONCITY, STATE, COUNTRY

    Example: Abraham Lincoln - Lincoln Memorial - Washington DC, USA

    In the Long Description:

    Write the quote or text that is being waymarked. In the case of multiple quotes at the same location, add all quotes at the location. (Text can generally be searched on the internet so this should not be a difficult requirement.) Briefly describe the circumstances of the quote. Finally, briefly describe the person.

    In the Text Box:

    Place an approximate location, city, state, country, and zip code of the area. Examples of “approximate location” include but is not limited to: street intersections, Highway and mile marker location, address of building, memorial, memorial or structure closest to the sign. Which ever method is used, please annotate that in the box. A good example would look like:

    St Charles County Courthouse
    200 West 2nd Street
    St. Charles, Missouri 63301

    Required:

    A minimum of two original photograph taken by you at the location

    1. Picture of the quote.
