Excerpt from The Cyclopædia of Practical Quotations: English and Latin; With an Appendix; Containing Proverbs From the Latin and Modern Foreign Languages; Law and Ecclesiastical Terms and Significations, Names, Dates and Nationality of Quoted Authors, Etc.; With Copious Indexes
Seasons, Trees, etc., have ever before been made, and their practical value will, we are sure, be appreciated.
If the subjects in the Appendix do not cover quotations, strictly speaking, they certainly do cover much proverbial philosophy, and items of information that are far oftener wanted than found. The object has not been to treat exhaustively any one topic, but to glean what is likely to be most wanted, by popular writers and readers, in the ordinary cur rent of life and work. Here, as elsewhere, usefulness has been studied rather than profuse ness. Not a line has been knowingly added merely to expand the book.
