Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations

f84d8ce4-2b51-4465-b131-1c932bd850df

The famous Oxford Dictionary of Quotations has 20,000 entries. Now the latest edition of the Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations has distilled that to 4,000, a selection chosen to include the most famous and most useful.

  The format of the Little Oxford reflects that of the larger volume: quotations are arranged under an alphabetical list of subject headings, with an alphabetical index of sources and authors at the end.

  There are some 350 subject headings ranging from youth (including JM Barrie’s I’m not young enough to know everything) to old age (there’s American poet Anne Sexton’s In a dream you are never eighty), and from belief (with Lewis Carroll’s Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast) to doubt (including dramatist Christopher Hamptons I’m a man of no convictions, at least I think I am).

   There are all the quotes you need to enliven your writing or to make a point – all together is a desk-size reference tool.
