„Hayek's work on price theory is central to my own thinking about how to manage the Wikipedia project. … [O]ne can't understand my ideas about Wikipedia without understanding Hayek.“

— Jimmy Wales
Context: Hayek's work on price theory is central to my own thinking about how to manage the Wikipedia project. … [O]ne can't understand my ideas about Wikipedia without understanding Hayek. Jimmy Wales, cited by Katherine Mangu-Ward, "[http://reason.com/archives/2007/05/30/wikipedia-and-beyond Wikipedia and Beyond: Jimmy Wales' sprawling vision]," Reason (June 2007). Also cited by Morton Winston and Ralph Edelbach, Society, Ethics, and Technology 4th ed. (Boston, MA: Wadsworth, 2012), p. 200.

„The real struggle is not between the right and the left — that's where most people assume — but it's between the party of the thoughtful and the party of the jerks. And no side of the political spectrum has a monopoly on either of those qualities.“

— Jimmy Wales
Context: Most people understand the need for neutrality. The real struggle is not between the right and the left — that's where most people assume — but it's between the party of the thoughtful and the party of the jerks. And no side of the political spectrum has a monopoly on either of those qualities. [http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/37 "How a ragtag band created Wikipedia"] - TED Talk (July 2005); this has sometimes appeared paraphrased as "The real struggle is not between the right and the left but between the party of the thoughtful and the party of the jerks."

„When someone just writes 'f**k, f**k, f**k', we just fix it, laugh and move on.“

— Jimmy Wales
Context: When someone just writes 'f**k, f**k, f**k', we just fix it, laugh and move on. But the difficult social issues are the borderline cases — people who do some good work, but who are also a pain in the neck. As quoted in "Who knows?", The Guardian (26 October 2004)

„If people could treat others as though they were speaking face to face, that would be huge.“

— Jimmy Wales
Context: There’s plenty of rude stuff online. People say things online that they would be ashamed to say face to face. If people could treat others as though they were speaking face to face, that would be huge. As quoted in "The Encyclopedist’s Lair" in The New York Times (19 November 2007)
