Little Oxford Gift Box Summary


Little Oxford Gift Box: Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations; Little Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs by Edited by Elizabeth Knowles

From Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde to Fidel Castro and Dolly Parton, the Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations features 4,000 of the best quotations of past and present. Packed with quotable quotes on over 300 themes from 'Parties' to 'Punctuality', and from 'Apology' to 'Toasts', this is the ideal tool for finding exactly the right words to express yourself in any situation. Its perfect complement is the Little Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs, which includes fascinating information on 2,000 proverbs and sayings from around the world and across 250 subjects - from 'Cats' and 'Dogs' to 'Achievement' and 'Extravagance'. Here are classic quotations from writers like Robert Louis Stevenson ('Wine is bottled poetry'), sharp remarks of today 'Winning isn't everything. It's the money you make doing it that's everything.' (Lee Trevino), and proverbs old and new, from the traditional 'Let sleeping dogs lie' to the Chinese saying 'Once bitten by a snake, a man will be afraid of a piece of rope for three years'. Between them, these two charming little books will have the perfect words for whatever you want to say.
