Does anyone know of a good website (Preferrably) or a book with lots of Quotes from Ancient Egyptian texts? Anything would be helpful except the book of the dead, that's not what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

Can you give us more of an idea of what you are specifically looking for, or perhaps what you need it for?

Is something like this: http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/texts/ along the right lines?

It's an online game where someone posts a quote from an Ancient Source (it has to be a person) and whoever guesses who wrote it correctly gets to post the next quote. But I can't find anything with a lot og quotes in it except for one book and they're all by one person.

Well, Akhenaten said these about Nefertiti:
"possessed of charm", "sweet of love", " one is happy to hear her voice" and "contents the Aten with her sweet voice." Maybe that will help? And, I have a couple of quotes in my heiroglyphics book:
"I have been roasting since the beginning of time-I have never seen the like of this goose"- Meir III
"I was an istute individual who spoke with his (own)mouth, who acted with his (own)strong arm, and who kept his town at distance from himself. I was a dignitary at Thebes, and a great pillar in Khentyt. I surpassed any peer of mine in this town in all kinds of dignity/wealth."
-Hekaib's stela
"His (the pharoah's) true servant of his affection, one foremost of position in the house of his lord; an official great of his heart, one who knows the desire of his lord, one who follows him at all his journeys."
-Tjetji's stela
Ask if you need more.

Thank you for posting this informative site! I hadn't realized that so much had been posted on the internet. Some of the translations, those I've read so far, have been excellent.
