QUOTATIONS for SPECIAL OCCASIONS QUOTATIONS for SPECIAL OCCASIONS BY MAUD VAN BUREN NEW YORK TOE H. W. WILSON COMPANY 1939 Preface Never enough the plaint of librarians oftenest heard in any discussion of SPECIAL DAY resources. As for quotations, there are enough, certainly, scattered through many volumes old and new. This book is an eifort to bring together in small compass the best of these widely-scattered thoughts, for that ever-increasing demand upon libra ries, from schools, churches, clubs and the ever-growing number of organizations of every imaginable interest. The resources of many public and college libraries have been drawn upon for this volume. I am specially indebted to Miss Genevieve M. Macdonald and Miss Alice L Branham of the Minneapolis Public Library, Miss Helen K. Starr and Miss Helen Rugg of the James Jerome Hill Reference Library of St. Paul, and to Miss Eleanor Herrmann and Miss Elsie Baker of the St. Paul Public Library, for generous aid in research.
