    Tried that, but I have 50+ to learn and recalling the right one for the question that way, is a bit of a struggle...

    Ohh right aha. Then maybe you could use a psychological technique. Organise the quotes into the different questions, and read them right before you go to sleep. This would mean that they are the first thing you'll remember when you wake up.
    If that doesn't work for you, then I'm out of ideas :/ ...

    Just remember a handful and build them into your answers. Beyond this, you can just make up small quotes from novels with almost zero chance of anything negative happening.

    For one, you can often trim quotes down to bare essentials (for instance by using ellipses); otherwise, what worked for me is writing them/typing them a few times. I learnt the classic Hamlet soliloquy by writing it a few times lol
