A Dictionary of Thoughts

My favorite book of quotations is available on Google books. It is called A Dictionary of Thoughts and was originally compiled by Tryon Edwards (pictured on the left). The Revision Editor, Ralph Emerson Browns, wrote:
"Tryon Edwards published his first book of quotations in 1852 under the title, Jewels for the Household, a substantial work of 448 pages. The title Dictionary of Thoughts was first given to the larger revised and enlarged by C. N. Catrevas with the assistance of C. A. Bender and of Jonathan Edwards who, like the compiler, was a descendant of the great preacher and educator of the same name."
