I'm doing my first bibliography and I'm getting errors for one hour now. The .tex file :

\documentclass[francais,10pt,twosides,a4paper]{report}

\usepackage[francais,polutonikogreek]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{textgreek}

\begin{document}
\begin{quotation}
 notre âme. \cite{ref1}
 \end{quotation}
 \end{document}

And the bib :

@book
{ref1,
  title = {Manuel d’Épictète}
  author = {Arrien}
  publisher = {Wikisource \url{https://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Manuel_d>%E2%80>>%99%C3%89pict%C3%A8te_(trad._Thurot)#I._Distinction_entre_ce_qui_d.C3.A9pend_de_nous_et_ce_
 qui_ne_d.C3.A9pend_pas_de_nous}},
  note = {Traduit par Jean-François Thurot} 
  year = {1889}
}

Could you please help me to deal with this problem ? Thank you.

    have you tried writing the comas after title, author and note? as you have done after publisher?

There are several errors in your code.

  1. LaTeX needs a command to know where it should print the bibliography, based on your cited books, articles etc.
  2. Your bib file has some errors. I corrected them in my following MWE (please see the added commas and the usage of field url).
  3. You are using encoding utf-8. That's the reason I used package biblatex and program biber to create the bibliography, because biber can handle utf-8, bibtex not.

MWE, compiling without errors:

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{goossens,
  author    = {Goossens, Michel and Mittelbach, Frank and 
               Samarin, Alexander},
  title     = {The LaTeX Companion},
  edition   = {1},
  publisher = {Addison-Wesley},
  location  = {Reading, Mass.},
  year      = {1994},
}
@Book{adams,
  title     = {The Restaurant at the End of the Universe},
  author    = {Douglas Adams},
  series    = {The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy},
  publisher = {Pan Macmillan},
  year      = {1980},
}
@article{einstein,
  author  = {Albert Einstein},
  title   = {{Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper}. ({German}) 
             [{On} the electrodynamics of moving bodies]},
  journal = {Annalen der Physik},
  volume  = {322},
  number  = {10},
  pages   = {891--921},
  year    = {1905},
  DOI     = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/andp.19053221004},
}
@book{ref1,
  title     = {Manuel d’Épictète},
  author    = {Arrien},
  publisher = {Wikisource},
  url       = {https://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Manuel_d>%E2%80>>%99%C3%89pict%C3%A8te_(trad._Thurot)#I._Distinction_entre_ce_qui_d.C3.A9pend_de_nous_et_ce_

  note      = {Traduit par Jean-François Thurot}, 
  year      = {1889},
}
\end{filecontents*}

\printbibliography

and the resulting bibliography:
