Ayshe | 3046 comments Erroneously entered against user's author profiles. (I can move some of them at some point, creating this as cleaning my bookmarks on machine I'm not likely to use often now).

Not entirely certain what you were requesting, but I merged the two profiles in English. We don't merge author profiles in different languages, so the Cyrillic one I left alone.

Ayshe | 3046 comments This quote: "Когато се задоволяваме с малкото, ние повече от всякога ставаме бого-подобни, защото боговете от нищо не се нуждаят. СОКРАТ", for example is by Socrates (Сократ in Bulgarian).

"Лошото семе бързо расте: РОМЕН РОЛАН” would be by "Romain Rolland"
and so on.

Err, I was not exactly requesting, I don't mind someone else working on this at all, but it's probably way easier if handled by someone knowing Bulgarian. Maybe I should delete this?

Ayshe | 3046 comments I moved some quotes. Deleted others which were proverbs (I read that such are not allowed). Will a Navajo song be in the same category as the proverbs?

I find it in English as (in case anyone is interested in further research):
"In beauty may I walk. All day long may I walk. Through the returning seasons may I walk. On the trail marked with pollen may I walk. With dew about my feet may I walk. With beauty may I walk"

That depends. If it has a known author (which it looks like this one might?) then it's fine.
