Walsh: International Encyclopedia of Prose and Poetical Quotations
International Encyclopedia of Prose and Poetical Quotations by William S. Walsh (1908)
As the subtitle of the books explains, quotations are included from many languages: English, Latin, Greek, French, Spanish, Persian, Italian, German, Chinese, Hebrew and others. At over a thousand pages long, there are indeed quite a few quotations in here. The quotations are organized alphabetically by topics with all the languages mixed together, along with various indexes, including author indexes and subject indexes. It's a fun book to browse through, and the Latin quotations do include the Latin as well as the English translation.
