Familiar Quotations

* * * * *

The object of this work is to show, to some extent, the obligations our
language owes to various authors for numerous phrases and familiar
quotations which have become "household words."
This Collection, originally made without any view of publication, has
been considerably enlarged by additions from an English work on a
similar plan, and is now sent forth with the hope that it may be found a
convenient book of reference.

merit of accuracy, as the quotations have been taken from the original
Should this be favorably received, endeavors will be made to make it
more worthy of the approbation of the public in a future edition.
