I bought my first "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations" when I was at university in 1950. Now I have the latest updated edition. I can't live without it! It is the greatest source of quotations from the ancient Greeks to the present personalities. It's what the most learned persons over the centuries have had to say about almost everything. It is a source to help you form your own life's philosophy based on what the philsophers, authors, statesmen, politicians, poets, persons in all walks of life, have had to say about themselves and the world we live in past and present!
