Great Sayings: Classic Words from Modern Times Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a sparkling collection of some of the most memorable lines ever spoken. From the most familiar - "A man who is tired of London..."- to unexpected discoveries, few books can unite so many well-chosen lines. Arranged by theme, from Love to Death to Eating and beyond, Great Sayings is a book for gathering inspiration, enjoyably dipping into, reading out loud, or for quiet reflection. If you ever find yourself wondering, "who said that?" or in need of quotations for a speech or for a wedding toast, this book is for you.

With memorable lines from Twain, Dickens, Dr. Johnson, Dorothy Parker, and many of the most eloquent writers and figures of modern times, the sayings here range from the meditative to the frankly scurrilous.
