The Columbia Dictionary of Quotations
Columbia University Press, 1993 - 1092 עמודים
Entertaining and easy to use, The Columbia Dictionary of Quotations brings together more than 18,000 fresh and intriguing remarks, witticisms, judgments, and observations on 1,500 alphabetically arranged subjects. More than 11,000 of these quotations have never before appeared in a quotation book. Full of the world's most apt sentences and less familiar quotations from Shakespeare to Malcolm X, from Lenin to Salman Rushdie, from Emily Dickinson to Camille Paglia, here is the best new large quotation book in decades--and the liveliest one available.
These funny, profound, touching, provocative, and memorable quotations, chosen not for their familiarity but for their quality and their relevance, cover subjects from adolescence and adoption to yuppies and zoos. Each quotation has a detailed, accurate citation. Read:
* Henry Kissinger and Desmond Tutu on leadership;
* John F. Kennedy and Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the press;
* Tallulah Bankhead and Andrea Dworkin on sex;
*Marlon Brando and Paul Gauguin on obesity;
* Emerson, Wilde, and Twain on just about anything.
