The object of this work is to show, to some extent, the obligations our language owes to various
authors for numerous phrases and familiar quotations which have become "household words."

This Collection, originally made without any view of publication, has been considerably enlarged by additions from an English work on a similar plan, and is now sent forth with the hope that it may be found a convenient book of reference.

Though perhaps imperfect in some respects, it is believed to possess the merit of accuracy, as the
quotations have been taken from the original sources.
Should this be favorably received, endeavors will be made to make it more worthy of the
approbation of the public in a future edition.
