    Since quotes generally convey wisdom, they all must be intellectual, to a degree, in order to endure. However, if you are referring to quotes related to a specific subject, like knowledge, the best way to indicate that is directly, as in: I like to read quotes about knowledge. You might also be more specific by indicating what aspect or kind of knowledge, such as "acquisition of", "utility of", or "practical application of."

    "intellectual"itself is an adjective, so it's the appropriate word to be used.

    The noun form is Intellect.

    Thanks.
