If you're the type who thumbs through Bartlett's to find a great quote to spice up your marketing presentation, consider a time-saver from Santa Clara, Calif.-based Crystal Graphics. The company has produced a computer plug-in that allows users to search 45,000 quotes by author, keyword, or source, or select from a list of 250 popular topics.

The neat thing about the product, PowerPlugs: Quotations, is that as a Microsoft Office plug-in, it integrates directly into PowerPoint and Word. Once the perfect quote is found, the user simply clicks “Apply” and the quotation and author's name are pasted into the file. The list price is $39, but the company is selling the plug-in at www.crystalgraphics.com for just $19.
