“Do… or do not. There is no try.” — Winston Churchill
John Bartlett’s “Familiar Quotations” was first printed in 1855. It’s still in print (many versions later), but it has also made the leap into the app world.
The ad copy:
Some people are born with a gift for eloquence.
The rest of us can always find it in Bartlett’s.
The most memorable expressions of everybody from Moses to Mao to Martin Luther King. Nearly 1800 pages and 21,000 quotations. Plus a huge new index that enables you to find the complete quotation in fifty seconds or less—even if you remember only a few of the words.
