"There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval." -George Santayana

"Truth is great and its effectiveness endures." -Ptahhotpe

From such varied sources as the Bible, Jane Austen, and John F. Kennedy, everyone is sure to find a gem.

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." -Muhammad Ali

With its thoughtful and entertaining selection of quotes, Bartlett's Words to Live By is an enlightening gift for the graduate or the student of life and a splendid addition to the reference shelf.

"Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently."

-Sir Winston Churchill

In 1855, Massachusetts bookseller John Bartlett self-published a small collection of prose and verse quotations. Since then, his volume has been continuously expanded and published to reflect the ever-changing cultural climate. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations remains the most authoritative, thought-provoking, and entertaining book of quotations available.
