Excerpt from Stokes' Encyclopedia of Familiar Quotations: Containing Five Thousand Selections From Six Hundred Authors; With a Complete General Index and an Index of Authors
N presenting to the public a new collection of familiar quotations, a brief explanation of the aim and the nature of the work seems to be demanded.
At the outset, the difficulty is encountered of determining the scope of the work, and the classes of readers to which it is to appeal. The primary object of a collection of familiar quotations is to furnish information as to the author of a fugitive line or passage, such as sometimes haunts the brain, and also the exact locality in that author's works where such line or passage may be found.
