Amazing Grace's Eclectic Quotation Collection

I have been working on my quote collection for over 30 years, and since 1986, when I got my first computer, I have organized these quotations into over 1600 categories. Unlike Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, I have ordered these quotations into categories by subject, which allows you to find all the familiar sayings on a topic in one place.

I call my work "Amazing Grace's Eclectic Quotation Collection." 99% of all quotes which have been posted on alt.quotations newsgroup over the past 3 years are included. I have planned, over the past 5 years to offer this Reference "book on a disc" for sale on CD-ROM, but had difficulty coming to that conclusion because: "A book of quotations - can never be complete." Robert M. Hamilton. I have decided to now offer you access to over 100,000 quotes in over 1600 categories on your computer. The text will occupy about 15MB if transferred to your hard drive.

The text is available in either Microsoft Word Document (DOS), Appleworks (for Macintosh) or plain text. (Please specify).

Note: I have this CD-ROM and it's truly impressive, just as massive and comprehensive as advertised. It's remarkably free of typographical and attribution errors and has a great number of quotes you won't find elsewhere. A very useful reference for anyone who enjoys quotations. Give it a try!
