From ancient Egypt to the present day, delve into a comprehensive exploration of world history by uncovering its most memorable phrases in the newly revised and updated nineteenth edition of Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations. Over 150 years since its initial release, Bartlett’s enters a new era with its nineteenth edition. Originally compiled by John Bartlett, a bookseller in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as a commonplace book spanning a mere 258 pages, the 1855 edition predominantly featured excerpts from the Bible, the works of Shakespeare, and renowned English poets.

Today, Bartlett’s boasts over 20,000 quotes from approximately 4,000 contributors. Encompassing centuries of intellectual thought and cultural richness, it stands as the most exceptional and beloved collection of quotations ever compiled. While upholding its tradition of timeless classical references, this edition incorporates more than 3,000 fresh quotes from over 700 new sources, including notable figures such as Alison Bechdel, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Pope Francis, Atul Gawande, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Hilary Mantel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Claudia Rankine, Fred Rogers, Bernie Sanders, Patti Smith, and Malala Yousafzai.

Bartlett’s showcases the ideas and musings not only from prominent individuals in the realms of arts, literature, politics, science, sports, and business but also from lesser-known individuals who have profoundly moved, challenged, or inspired readers and listeners throughout history. Searching for the perfect quote within Bartlett’s vast collection is effortless with three convenient methods: alphabetically by author, chronologically by the author’s birth date, or thematically by subject. Whether seeking suitable remarks for a celebration, comforting thoughts for a solemn occasion, or merely desiring to unravel the mysteries of “Who said that?” Bartlett’s delivers a magnificent treasury of words that have indelibly influenced individuals from all walks of life.
