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

—  Jimmy Wales

As quoted in "Who knows?", The Guardian (26 October 2004)
Kontext: 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.

„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

"How a ragtag band created Wikipedia" http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/37 - 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."
Kontext: 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.

„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.“

„We are a passionate community of volunteers who are trying to create a free encyclopedia for every single person on the planet.“

—  Jimmy Wales

Wikimania 2008 Alexandria, press conference, 0'20 (August 2008), asked about Google Knol
Kontext: We are a passionate community of volunteers who are trying to create a free encyclopedia for every single person on the planet. So we don't often think in terms of competition. We are going to do what we do and we hope Google does wonderful things as well. … If we were approaching this as a business we would think always: Oh, how can we position ourselves on the market... We just don't do any of that stuff.

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

—  Jimmy Wales

As quoted in "The Encyclopedist’s Lair" in The New York Times (19 November 2007)
Kontext: 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.

„I don't see any particular problem with that.“

—  Jimmy Wales
