"I am in far better circumstances than all the authors I have mentioned ; for though Catullus, Lucretius, Juvenal, and Suetonius be never so much condemned, a writer who cites them cannot be blamed for it."--"Explanation Concerning Obscenities" (1702) by Pierre Bayle

Unpublished writings or speech, such as working papers and personal communications, are also sometimes cited. Citations are provided in scholarly works, bibliographies, and indexes. The word citation may also mean the act of citing a work, that is, providing a reference to the work in the form of a bibliographic citation.
