Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At last, an easy to use, comprehensive dictionary of quotations that contains entries from the Bible, Shakespeare, and rock'n'roll. Inside you'll find exciting new quotations from contemporary figures including Gloria Steinem and Adrienne Rich on feminism, Faye Wattleton and Dr. Ruth Westheimer on sex, Cher on intimacy, David Henry Hwang and Steven Biko on race, George Burns on old age, Vince Lombardi on victory, and Madonna on egotism. Recent subjects such as ecology and computers make this an extraordinary useful reference for public speakers as well as for the creation of your own written works. Created by leading experts in linguistics and lexicography. First-time-ever quoted from scores of contemporary women and men. Easy alphabetical arrangement of subjects. Subject index, author index, and a unique conceptual index to facilitate access to related ideas. Brief biographies of every individual quoted.

Synopsis:

This distinguished dictionary of quotations incorporates centuries of wit and wisdom, from the spokesmen of antiquity to the voices of the '90s. The unique concept index eliminates time and frustration, and contains hundreds of conceptual categories.
