    "This is not an app, but a website. There may be an app for this service as well, but this particular link takes me to their site, which does not fully satisfy my search. This does seem to be exactly the sort of service I want though."

    "Goodreads Popular Quotes is a neat way to find a new book to read. Read a short snippet from an author, and if you like what you read, download the book. The only downside is that not every quotation comes from a book, and some are provided without citation of any kind. "
