Wikiquote:Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations

From Wikiquote
Jump to: navigation, search

Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations, published in 1922, is the latest and largest public domain quotations book available. The entire work has now been incorporated into Wikiquote's theme pages, but some correction may still be needed. The work has also been uploaded in an unformatted state at our sister project, Wikisource. The original work is also available to view at Google Books, here, and also here. The work is arranged by themes, not authors. These themes are listed below. Note that Hoyt's has some very short sections on things such as types of flowers, trees, and birds, or on individual rivers. These short sections have generally been combined into the existing pages on general themes such as Flowers.
