Quotations that will add spice to your writing and conversation.

Product Information

The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations is as impressive, erudite, enjoyable, and educational a tome as you might expect from Oxford. It's the sort of undertaking the press does very well.

The first such dictionary, as compiled by Oxford, was published in 1953, and it's been tweaking, modifying, and updating it ever since. This new edition, the fifth, offers well over 20,000 quotations from more than 3,000 authors. 

Contains the wit and wisdom of humanity - the finest lines to be found in Shakespeare, the Bible, Mark Twain, Groucho Marx, and hundreds of other writers, philosophers, political figures, and entertainers.

Responding to correspondence from their readers, Oxford has restored some material from past editions, such as the proverbs and nursery-rhymes section. There's a much more inclusive attention to sacred texts of world religions, and 2,000 quotations are brand new. 

Ranging from profound, to cogent, to witty, you can search through all the quotes with this CD.

An ideal reference for any home or office library.  A constant source of inspiration for speakers, writers, or anyone else who enjoys a sparkling line or a spirited reply.
