I don't see that applying here. Quotations of Mead would not be loosely associated with an article about him. They also display the subject's insight and personality. Glrx (talk) 01:02, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

"While Wikipedia's written policies and guidelines should be taken seriously, they can be misused. Do not follow an overly strict interpretation of the letter of policy without consideration for the principles of policies. If the rules truly prevent you from improving the encyclopedia, ignore them. Disagreements are resolved through consensus-based discussion, not by tightly sticking to rules and procedures. Furthermore, policies and guidelines themselves may be changed to reflect evolving consensus." 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:12, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Well then look at the pump discussion because that's the consensus. Quotes integrated into the article not by themselves. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:36, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
