Excerpt from Familiar Quotations: Being an Attempt to Trace to Their Sources; Passages and Phrases in Common Use
Many maxims of the most famous writers of our language, and numberless curious and happy turns from orators and poets, have knocked at the door, and it was hard to deny them. But to admit these simply on their own merits, without assurance that the general reader would readily recognize them as old friends, was aside from the purpose of this Collection.
Still, it has been thought better to incur the risk of erring on the side of fulness.
Owing to the great number of Quotations added in this edition, it has been necessary to make an entire reconstruction of the book.
