Famous quotes containing the words dictionary and/or biographical:

    The reputation of a man is like his shadow; it sometimes follows and sometimes precedes him, sometimes longer and sometimes shorter than his natural size.
    —French Proverb. Quoted in Dictionary of Similes, ed. Frank J. Wilstach (1916)

    Biography, in its purer form, confined to the ended lives of the true and brave, may be held the fairest meed of human virtue—one given and received in entire disinterestedness—since neither can the biographer hope for acknowledgment from the subject, not the subject at all avail himself of the biographical distinction conferred.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
