My book, The Yale Book of Quotations, has at last been published (by Yale
University Press). This is intended to supplant the Oxford Dictionary of
Quotations and Bartlett's Familiar Quotations as the most authoritative
quotation dictionary. The YBQ is the first major quotation book to
emphasize modern sources, including popular culture, sports, computers,
and politics, and the first quotation book of any sort to use
state-of-the-art research methods to comprehensively collect famous
quotations and to trace quotations to their accurate origins.

More information about The Yale Book of Quotations can be found at
http://yalepress.yale.edu/yupbooks/home.asp or www.amazon.com or
www.barnesandnoble.com.

The YBQ includes the more famous quotes from mathematics and
related disciplines, sometimes presenting better information about
origins of mathematical quotations than can be found anywhere else.
