This book has two hundred pages of Classical era Greek quotations and their English translation. You can download it free at Google Book
This is the direct link to the book: http://books.google.com/books?vid=OCLC65692823&id=ETmlvCBCrOMC&pg=RA6-PA686&lpg=RA6-PA686&dq=Harbottle%27s+Classical+Quotations&as_brr=1#PRA5-PA416,M1
or try typing "Harbottle's Classical Quotations" in the search window.
[select the option 'full view books' ]
The author is Thomas Harbottle. Up to page 314 are Latin Quotations, then the Greek Quotations start and go for two hundred pages.
An example, page 391 by Theocritus:
" Great heroes then from demigods were born,
Whose noble deeds wise bards did celebrate."

This book in question was not displayed on Google Book? Would appreciate your help since I'm learning Greek on my own. There aren't any books/audio CD available here to aid me in this endeavour. Any help in learning Greek would be welcome! Thanks.

Searching Google Books can give odd results, even for
books you know are there.
Try typing in "Harbottle's Classical Quotations".
This just now worked for me on Google Book search.
It should turn up a 1906 book of 686 pages.

See textkit for Greek Grammars and readers. White's "First Greek book" is good.
