The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations by Angela Partington
Fully revised and updated, this edition of a standard dictionary of quotations contains 20,000 quotations from 3,000 men and women from all walks of life. Quotes from all eras are included, from the Bible and Shakespeare to advertising slogans and song lyrics. There is increased coverage of quotations from women authors, from non-English language sources, and from science, films, TV, journalism and politics. Each quotation is accompanied by its earliest traceable occurrence, and the main listing is complemented by a useful key word index.
