To be found here are memorable and quotable excerpts from a wide range of contemporary as well as classical literature. They widely avoid the ""quotes"" found in so many collections so often to have become hackneyed. They provide a much needed supply of fresh material which writers, public speakers and preachers will delight to have. They are grouped by subjects alphabetically, and range all the way from Absence to Worry and Youth. Only a man with wide interests who is a tireless reader, such as Dr. Gerald Kennedy, could produce as invaluable a volume as this.
