It is important to try and make sure each quote has several functions when trying to choose them for the exam. This way, you can minimise the amount of wrote-learning you will have to do and concentrate on thinking thematically. As such, I think it is useful to look at your texts as a whole and think of key themes which might come up in the exam. For example, unrequited love. Then, find four/five quotes from each text that could fit for this theme. However, when choosing, you should also consider how each quote is interesting stylistically - is it an example of a imagery (e.g. an extended metaphor) or a example for structure (e.g. enjambment). If each of your quotes has two/three talking points, this should making your learning more efficient as each can lend itself to different potential discussions within your essays.
