QUOTATIONS
FOR O C CASIONS

“He searches all the Records of Wit,
to compile a Breviate of them for the
se of Players, Printers, Booksellers,
and Sometimes Cooks, [or] Tobacco-
Men.”—WYCHERLEY, Love in a Wood.

HIS little book is not put forth to supply an imperative demand, but rather with the hope of creating one. So far as is known to the writer, no such compilation is in existence, but the custom of using appropriate quotations on dinner menus, cards, invitations, etc., is growing, and of the many who desire to use such citations, not all know just where to find them. This book is intended to lessen the labor of search, for it is nearly “as difficult to appropriate the thoughts of others as it is to invent.” The reader, however, is warned not to be too sure that the author of any quotation had in mind the subject to which it is applied here.
