View Full Version : Sources for Quotations

Can anyone recommend a good source (or sources) for quotations? I'm aware of Bartlett's and several on the Internet, but I would like to find a source/sources that's fairly large and comprehensive - those that include less well known and obscure quotes, for example.

The 1919 edition of Bartlett's Familiar Quotations and the 1988 edition of Simpsonís Contemporary Quotations are both online and both searchable. See http://www.bartleby.com/index.html
I have had good luck using text searches with search engines to track down the source of quotations that I know the exact wording of (at least in part).
