|I have gathered a posie of other men’s flowers, and nothing but the thread that binds them is mine own.|
A Collection of Passages, Phrases, and Proverbs Traced to Their Sources in Ancient and Modern Literature
Compiled by John Bartlett
This tenth edition of 1919 contains over 11,000 searchable quotations and was the first new edition of John Bartlett’s corpus to be published after his death in 1905—the new editor, however, choosing more to supplement than revise the work of the first name in quotations.
