Editorial Reviews


Over 6,000 quotations from ancient to modern world traditions and from cultures around the world are included in a fine volume which culls contributions from leading writers, philosophers, artists and activists. The focus on a range of genres and sources provides a far more diverse collection than competitors, using a strong cross-referencing system to further enhance this title's value. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was really looking for another book. I wish I could think of the title or author, but I can't. It was something about first or familiar lines of famous poems or stories and it gave you the title and author. But if you're looking for a famous quotes book, this is a good one.
