विकीकथन कथनहरूको एक बहुभाषिक सतत-सक्रिय (अनलाइन) मुक्त-सामग्री सार-संग्रह हो । केवल प्रतिलिप्यधिकार कथनहरूलाई छोडेर सबै कथन मुक्त प्रलेखन अनुज्ञा जिएफडिएल र सिसि-बिवाई-एसएको आधीन त्यसरी नै जारी गरिन्छ जसरी अन्य विकिमीडिया फाउंडेसन परियोजनाहरू ।
यो जून २७,२००३ मा मेटामा बेनाम पोस्टको साथ सुरू भएको थियो ।
प्रस्तावित विचार: विकीशब्दकोश एक एनसाइक्लोपीडियाको उद्धरण। अस्थायी पृष्ठ यहाँ फेला पार्न सकिन्छ:  - fonzy।
यो जुलाई १०, २००३ मा quote.wikipedia.org को रूपमा सुरू भयो र पछि २५ अगस्त २००३ मा विकिकथन मा परिणत भयो।
विकिकथनमा जुन २००४ मा ६ भाषाहरुमा २५०० लेखहरु थिए । एक वर्षपछि डोमेनको पहिलो प्रस्ताव अन्तर्गत wikiquote.org अङ्ग्रेजी भन्दा अन्य भाषा बोल्ने अन्य भाषाहरूले आफ्नै उपडोमेन १७ जुलाईमा अनुरोध गरेका थिए । तिनीहरूले सुरुमा विकिकथनलाई जर्मन, फ्रान्सेली, इटालियन र पोलिश भाषाहरूमा सृजना गरेका थिए ।
The Wikiquote project is expanding slowly but steadily. At the end of September there were about 15 Wikiquotes, both large and small. On December 1, there were 24 Wikiquote projects. There were almost 6,500 articles in total in December 2004. At the end of May 2005 the total number of articles reached 14,000. It included nearly 30,000 articles in over 30 languages in February 2006, over 60,000 articles in 87 languages in May 2007 and over 80,000 articles in 89 languages in June 2008.
Since the last update of June 2008, the number of languages has remained stable, while the number of articles has doubled. As of 10 May 2014, about eleven years after its creation, the Wikiquote project now includes over 168,000 articles in 89 languages. Twenty-eight language versions have more than 1,000 articles. Fifty-six language versions have 100 or more articles.
The largest Wikiquotes are Polish and English, with over 23,000 articles each. The next largest are Italian and Russian with over 10,000 articles, followed by German, Portuguese, French, Spanish and Czech; all of which have over 5,000 articles.
Sometimes the Wikiquote project faces troubles and challenges. One of the most remarkable challenges was copyright issues on the French Wikiquote. To avoid problems, on March 2006 the Foundation decided to take it down, erase all its material and relaunch it. For details, see the announcement from the Foundation.
However, devoted editors rescued the situation. They settled their charter and polices, and French Wikiquote was relaunched on December 4, 2006.
