WILLIAM B. SPRAGUE, D.D.

"Quolation, sir, is a good thing; there is a community of mind in it; classical quotation is the parole
of literary men all over the world."--Dr. Johnson.

“ Abstracts, abridgments, summaries, etc., have the same use with burning-giasses—to collect the
diffused rays of wit and learning in authors, and make them point with warmth and quickness upon
the reader's imagination."-Swift.
