No matter what your occupation, a novel, motivating, approproe, stimulating, catchy, quote, which is short, meaningful, to the point, can be found in this book. Today I find that most writing in whatever forum is boring and the same literary boundries. This book gives you a good quote, the author of it, and you decide when and how to use it! Glad I bought it and would recommend.

When writing, I like to start chapters with appropriate to the subject quotes. This does it--so I sent a copy to my grandaughter

- an excellent reference book:
- comprehensive, as well as enjoyable to consult:
- it suits my purposes as the writer of a particularly "classical" novel.

This book is a compendium of quotes but is unwieldy in its presentation. I believe many of the quotes are pertinent but some easier type of guide to finding them would be helpful.
