Quotation Resources

“I suppose every old scholar has had the experience of reading
something in a book which was significant to him, but which
he could never find again. Sure he is that he read it there, but
no one else ever read it, nor can he find it again, though he buy
the book and ransack every page.”  –Ralph Waldo Emerson
