I've added five quotes of my own but don't feel qualified to rank them together with the others. Perhaps wiser heads can help! Rafael (talk) 19:31, 18 April 2019 (EDT)

I'm just curious why "upon this rock I will build my church" is being ranked here. It came true, but this statement about Peter doesn't seem to me like one of the "most influential phrases" in history. Am I missing something? --DavidB4 (TALK) 20:24, 18 April 2019 (EDT)
I'd have no problem deleting it. Honestly, I'm not sure about Genesis 1:1 either, since there are more "influential" (whatever that means) verses in the Bible (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:4, John 3:16). It's easier having an article on "most influential books" rather than just quotes. --1990'sguy (talk) 20:27, 18 April 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, I'm not quite sure what to do with this page. Several others, like "Government has no other end, but the preservation of property" and "Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem" are good quotes, but I'm not sure how "influential" they were. --DavidB4 (TALK) 20:30, 18 April 2019 (EDT)
How about "Work brings freedom"? In context, it's a terrifying quote, but it was "influential," in a bad way. --DavidB4 (TALK) 20:31, 18 April 2019 (EDT)
