This book has a truly excellent selection of quotes. There are no dud quotes or ones that leave you guessing. Lewis Henry has done an admirable editing job.

This book is full of many interesting quotes from many famous historical figures. The only thing I did not enjoy about this book is the quotes are mostly from the 1500s, 1600s, and 1700s. I was hoping to see some quotes from more modern sources and/or public figures. All and all though it's a great little book with a wealth of interesting quotes in it and for only $7.95 I can't complain :)

I have used my quotation dictionaries for decades, and bought this one for a friend. They always provide something appropriate (and different) to write in a greeting card for any occasion. My friend just joined Toastmasters, and is always looking for new ways to phrase something, or inspire her with a topic.

I always love reading qoutes, proverbs and sayings because they make your day, and teach teach you many things. The author has made a great job, butting all this sayings together In this lovely book.

only payed .01 plus tax so sent to Good Will. I love qoutes and have several books of them at home, but was so dissappointed in this one. They were short,stupid and of no wisdom. (maybe a couple) Wouldn't recommend this one to anyone. On the other hand I got it fast but not in the condition promised. I bought it used but, looking like new? No.

I found this book to be well written and insightful. It has a quotation on just about every subject matter! I have found it to be informative as well as creative.

This book contains tons of quotations, and makes for a great reference book for those of us who use quotes regularly in our day-to-day life. I am not a huge fan of anonymous quotes, so those were annoying, but there were so many great quotes in this book that I still rated it five stars. This collector has done a fabulous job putting together a very good collection.

Enjoy!
