Web Site of the Week: Proverbs, Maxims and Phrases of All Ages

Originally published in 1887, the volume “Proverbs, Maxims and Phrases of All Ages” was compiled by Robert Christy.  The intent of this volume was to serve as a reference volume for  libraries and personal use. The people at Bartleby.com have made it available here in its entirety, and it may serve as a source of inspiration to budding writers, philosophers, and orators. Visitors can search the work by categories like “Advice,” “Fortune,” and “Honor.” Also, the formal Preface is quite an elaborate bit of writing, and sets an appropriate tone for the work. [KMG]
