A clue may make use of a well-known quotation. You would expect to get enough information to identify the quotation, or enough at least to send you to the correct source. Have a look at this one:

So this a quotation from Oscar Wilde, something to do with a declaration . . . declaring something . . . how about
"I have nothing to declare except my genius."

Yes, a real quotation, so the answer is GENIUS. The man may indeed have been a genius, but he obviously didn't know the meaning of modesty!

A Dictionary of Quotations is obviously your best help with Quotation clues - besides being an absolute joy to browse through!
