Full of snappy one-liners and the world's greatest ideas, this stimulating volume ranges from the wisdom of the Bible, Shakespeare, and the great philosophers to the more modern meditations of Bona, J. K. Rowling, and George W. Bush. There is Yogi Berra's immortal 'The future ain't what it used to be,' Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Wine is bottled poetry,' and Lao Tzu's 'A good traveler has no fixed plans.' From literature to the law, music to the movies, readers will find an abundance of classic quotes and little known gems to enliven their speeches, conversation, reports and correspondence. And to make this volume even easier to use, a full index allows readers to search the text by author as well as theme.
The fifth edition has many new themes--including Africa, Facts, Honesty, India, Insight, Kissing, Persistence, Wisdom, Wit--and over 400 new quotations. Concise, convenient, authoritative, and affordable, The Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations allows readers to keep a traveling data base of entertainment and information right in their pocket. It's as handy as it is indispensable--the perfect reference for home, school, and office.
