From the Back Cover:

A vast collection of more than seven hundred quotations meant to inspire genius, this scrapbook contains favored sayings of the late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century essayist Elbert Hubbard. Here the words of history's and literature's greats from William Shakespeare, Benjamin Franklin, Marcus Aurelius, Charlotte Bront�, and Dante to Charles Dickens, Thomas Jefferson, Pythagoras, and Oscar Wilde meet. Originally published posthumously as a tribute to Hubbard, this compilation includes the musings of George Washington on jealousy, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley on love, Plato on man, and hundreds of others. The universe's most momentous questions about life and success, as well as love, humanity, nature, and war, unfold in memorable passages. Indexes by author, topic, and poem serve for easy reference.

About the Author:

Hubbard spent much of his life carefully collecting quotes and passages of significance from history and literature. As he gathered these selections, he added them to his scrap book for his own personal inspiration. Yet, he never once conceived of the idea to publish what had served as spiritual nourishment for his own refreshment and pleasure.
