Here's a readers' favorite!
Have you ever heard of the Book of Virtues by former Secretary of Education, William Bennett? It was published in 1993, but is on its way to becoming a classic, probably because it is made up of classics. "A Treasury of Great Moral Stories," the Book of Virtues contains stories written centuries ago, from Biblical stories to political speeches and many stories from literature.
