I'm maintaining fortune-zh, Chinese Data files for fortune,
which is a native debian package originally created by a Debian

So I'm just cherry-picking some fine sentences into those data files,
and some times I copied every sentence on the page of some certain
famous people.

Tracing the copyright is ... horror...

IMO, whereas the content I picked are all famous words,
maybe I can feel free to cherry-pick them?

Thank you. :-)
