Dictionaries of quotations fulfill many needs: identifying
a given quotation, verifying an author, providing suitable quotations
for a subject area, and supplying selections from the writings of prominent
persons. The research collections of The New York Public Library supply
a wide assortment of general and specialized quotation dictionaries,
and these sources, when properly employed, provide the researcher with
an inestimable tool in researching the statements of notable people.
