Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations

Compiled by J. K. HOYT Over thirty thousand choice quotations, embracing a comprehensive list of subjects, with eighty-six thousand lines of concordance; also an Appendix containing quotations from the modern foreign languages, Latin law terms, etc. Every quotation is selected with discrimination as to its pertinence to the subject of which it treats, the prominence and authority of its author, and its probable usefulness to the user. The wide popularity of the cyclopedia among literary and professional men and the emphatic commendations from high authorities have abundantly attested the value of the work to writers, speakers, lawyers, ministers, teachers, and others who have occasion to strengthen or beautify their written or spoken words by apt quotations.
